I know the thought of getting pricked with needles to some of you , may make you squirm, but did you know how many health benefits Acupuncture has? I have been getting acupuncture for quite some time now, and it’s just amazing. Yes , the first time you go to your appointment, you do seem to be a bit shaken by the thought of a bunch of needles sticking out of your skin. The good thing is , when you walk out, you feel amazing.
Acupuncture originates from China, and is thousands of years old. The insertion of needles through your skin, hits specific energy points that has great depths throughout. This moves energy through your system, and is known to have many health benefits including pain relief , especially back pain, and helps to alleviate nausea. They place the needles on meridians where the energy runs, and that produces the ” qi” energy. Acupuncture has also been known to help with digestive problems and help with the overall balance of your systems , putting them in a state of balance. There are 350 acupuncture points, and it is known that illness is said to caused by the body not having a balance within.
When it comes to acupuncture, there are very few side effects. If you are a person that doesn’t take standard over the counter medicine, or doesn’t like to take prescription pain medicine, then acupuncture is for you. The whole concept is to get past the fear of picturing needles sticking out of your whole body. Once you get the first one in, it’s such a simple treatment, that truly does your body good. I’m a huge believer in Alternative Medicine, and it really does help people alleviate the problems that they may have . Acupuncture has also been known to help regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle, as well as help with a fertility boost. Haven’t tried it yet? Go for it! You may see a huge difference in your well being.
