Acupuncture for back painGetting poked with sharp objects might not seem like something you would be into, but think again. Acupuncture is a treatment option that is not a part of traditional western medicine. While acupuncture can seem intimidating at first, it should be noted that it is not as intimidating as it seems. Acupuncture can be traced back thousands of years and was originally a form of Chinese medicine. It is believed that the body contains patterns of energy flow, the vital energy of the body is called qi.

Proper flow of qi is necessary to maintain health. Acupuncture is said to stimulate the central nervous system. Individuals say that they feel a tingling sensation, even relaxed or energized, after an acupuncture session.

Everyone describes their experience with acupuncture in a different way, but very rarely does someone describe their experience as painful.

Acupuncture for back pain: Do you deal with back pain on a regular basis? Acupuncture can help with that! Lower back pain is one of the top reasons people seek acupuncture treatment. Whether you sit at a desk all day, or haul heavy things, it causes strain and stress on our backs which can cause back pain. People with chronic lower back pain have said they’ve found at least short term relief through acupuncture. One theory suggesting why acupuncture may work for back pain is acupuncture speeds up the relay of electromagnetic signals, which in return may begin releasing our natural pain-killers: endorphins. If you’re experiencing chronic back pain and you can’t seem to find relief maybe acupuncture is right for you!

Acupuncture for neck pain: Do you deal with neck pain on a regular basis with no relief? Acupuncture, almost in the same way as it relieves back pain, also relieves neck pain. No more trying to tough it out! Our necks hold so much tension that over time it can create neck pain.

Acupuncture for depression: Do you suffer with depression, but find anti-depressants either don’t work or aren’t worth the risks associated with them? Acupuncture may be able to help. Studies have found the acupuncture may be as effective as anti-depressants but without all the side effects. Interestingly enough, acupuncture may also be able to ease the side effects of anti-depressants as well if you feel taking anti-depressants is right for you. It is safe to say that whether you are taking anti-depressants or not, acupuncture could help ease the symptoms of depression!

Acupuncture for Insomnia: Do you have nights were you figure falling asleep would be a miracle? Surprisingly enough, acupuncture might be for you. Studies have found that with help from a few treatments of acupuncture your sleep can improve significantly! Acupuncture increases nighttime melatonin which helps you fall asleep and stay asleep! If you suffer from insomnia and don’t know what else you can do to help you catch some Zzz’s, acupuncture may be the relief you’re looking for!

These are just a few things people have sought out acupuncture to find relief from. Acupuncture treats a wide range of alignments. Although acupuncture isn’t mainstream in western medicine, it is a very useful treatment that has little to no side effects. It may seem scary at first, as all new things can be, but if you can find relief in acupuncture where you couldn’t elsewhere then it could be worth it!
