Advantages of professional acupuncture treatment
Do you want to feel refreshed, balanced, and healthy in both mind and body? Professional acupuncture treatment has the power to do all of this.
Why might you need acupuncture?
- You are a professional athlete and deal with aches and pains such as low back, neck, and knee pains.
- There is a slipped disk in your body, causing you to experience sciatica (pain from your lower back down to your leg, usually on one side of your body).
- As a pregnant woman, you have a lot of morning sickness.
- You had a stroke that has damaged your nerves and causes your muscles to go into painful spasms.
- Depression is causing your mind and body to feel heavy and unbearable.
Acupuncture treatment is natural. Small thin needles are inserted into strategic locations in your body to relieve pain caused by many issues like the ones mentioned above. One of the most significant advantages of this type of alternative medicine is there are no prescription drugs involved. After your treatment, you will be in a more positive state than before. Acupuncture helps to balance both mind and body by stimulating the release of feel-good endorphins.
Are chiropractors doctors? Can they provide acupuncture treatment?
Chiropractors are not medical doctors, but they are certified chiropractic practitioners who aid in healing your body. Chiropractors use alternate techniques to make adjustments to your spine and other areas of your body without the use of drugs. Benefits include the ability to have a wider range of mobility, relieve muscle tension, and correct posture.
Chiropractors use a hands-on approach when finding a solution for your issue in that they adjust your body with their hands so that it can help heal itself.
Chiropractic doctors will have completed a 3-year undergrad degree followed by a 4-year Dr. of Chiropractic Degree to practice within the province of Alberta.
To perform acupuncture on patients, chiropractors need to have completed a Diploma of Acupuncture followed by hundreds of training hours.
Here are some things to consider when getting an acupuncture treatment.
Do you feel drained after a full day of work, picking up your kids, and a basic workout? Does insomnia affect your energy levels during daylight hours?
Acupuncture treatment is extremely beneficial when it comes to building your energy levels. It can release tension and remove neck and spine pain. After treatment, you are likely to enjoy a good night’s sleep and awake refreshed.
Ancient Chinese philosophy is based on having a positive qi so that you maintain your health. Your qi points are the parts of your body that give you balance and energy. Acupuncture allows your stuck qi to flow by pointing acupuncture needles (very thin needles specific to this treatment) into areas of your body that are connected to your internal organs.
Help with Addiction
Used in many rehabilitation programs, acupuncture treatment is used in conjunction with other forms of therapy to help with addiction. Whether you are addicted to drugs, alcohol, or perhaps you just can’t quit smoking, acupuncture can reduce the positive reinforcement that comes with the dopamine in your drug of choice. Without feeling the “high” like normal, you are less likely to feel the drug is needed and may stop using it altogether.
Acupuncture needles inserted into your ears are the main healing point for this pinpointed treatment.
More energy and living a naturally healthy life seeps into your other activities and allows you to find that inner and outer healing you have been searching for. Are you ready to try acupuncture today?
