Acupuncture

The insertion of very thin needles through the skin at strategic points on the body is called Acupuncture. Acupuncture helps stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue thus boosting overall health. As per traditional Chinese medicine, Life force or energy flow through pathways in the human body and inserting needles into specific points along these pathways will re-balance the energy flow. 

Acupuncture has proven benefits for recovering from injury or illness and can help alleviate symptoms of sciatica, back pain, bursitis, neuropathy, arthritis, and other medical conditions.

When to see an Acupuncturist?

Anxiety and Mental Stress

Migraine

As per a study by the Canadian Medical Association Journal, acupuncture decreases the frequency of migraines, and the effects are long-lasting.

Mood Swings

Acupuncture is exceptionally good for patients with unexplainable mood swings. The needles trigger the neurotransmitters in the brain that make the patient happy. There will be no side effects that often come with prescription medicine like sleepiness or tiredness. 

Irregular Menstruation Cycle

It positively influences the body, relieves stress, and gives the patient energy to feel great. Due to this reason, acupuncture can be used for fertility treatment as well.

Sleep Disorder

Acupuncture Therapy addresses the imbalances in the body that disrupt the sleep cycle. It encourages the brain to generate neurotransmitters that contribute significantly towards relaxation, enabling sound sleep.
