These Are Exactly the Reasons Acupuncture May Be for You
Acupuncture has been around even before our grandparents were born, and as old as human history, it is still as prominent as it ever was because of its benefits. It rooted from China, where in has been practiced as an alternative approach to healing. Practitioners believe health is the product of the harmonious balance of the yin and yan’s, the complementary extremes of the forces of life called as ‘gi or chi,’ wherein QI is flowing through the body’s pathways or meridians, but can only be accessed by the body’s 350 acupressure points.
Part of this principle is that there will be illness if imbalance is present in these gi and chi, something that acupuncture can address—through inserting (sterile) needles in different pressure points using correct combinations, restoring the energy flow and its balance.*
Now, you’re asking, “So, what is in acupuncture for me?” There are plenty of ‘safe’ benefits to get from this alternative healing practice, and the most important ones, we’re going to highlight in the next section. Check them out.
Health Benefits of Acupuncture
Lessens chronic pain
This could be its most significant benefit for most patients who have undergone this type of therapy in addressing pain from arthritis, joint and muscle pain. According to the Archive of Internal Medicine, it can reduce pain by up to 15 percent, especially when used to lessen back pain due to poor sleeping habits, stress and injuries. Also, acupuncture is said to lessen knee pain after surgery; in fact, a study published in the Oxford Journals highlighted how patients with chronic knee pain have found lessening of pain from acupuncture. So if you’re looking for an effective pain management method, try acupuncture.*
Although a little of stress is good, many people suffer from too much of it due to work, life and family pressure, among others. But if you are looking for an effective alternative against stress, you may want to try acupuncture, which balances your body’s energy flow, in order to reduce a significant amount of stress. By being able to reduce stress in life, you can certainly achieve that balance and relaxation you’re looking for.
Following better balance and relaxation is a better quality of life, something you can also get from acupuncture. If you are able to balance your energy system plus a better diet and an improved physical activity, you will be able to see life in a better perspective and live it in the most enjoyable and productive way you know.*
As discussed, acupuncture is helpful for people suffering from chronic pain, but you don’t have to wait until you suffer from major pain before acupuncture. You can manage pain, including that due to back pain, menstrual pain, joint sprains and carpal tunnel syndrome.
