1. IT WILL BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Regular monthly acupuncture sessions, or even one or two treatments per year before the flu or cold season, can greatly increase the strength of your immune system. Acupuncture can help boost a weakened immune system or re-balance an over-active immune system by stimulating or calming the production of red and white blood cells in the body. Often times patients fighting various illnesses and disease have compromised immune function. In this case, acupuncture works with the body to bolster the production of white blood cells and strengthen the immune system’s resistance to infection by increasing its lymphocyte count and natural killer cell activity. Preventative acupuncture is also important in that it can help strengthen and maintain the balance of an already strong immune system. Patients who receive preventative acupuncture treatments are less affected by colds and the many viruses that go around each year.

2. Beat the Blues and Calm Anxiety

There are dozens of points on the body like Yin Tang and Liver 3 that can help calm the mind and relieve stress. There are more points to slow down your thoughts, treat chronic and acute anxiety, help with the symptoms of depression, mania, bipolar disease, and many more! TCM sees emotions as indications of the health of specific organs and organ systems in the body that may have an imbalance of yin and yang. A few points a week for a few sessions, or a week or two of herbal formulas, can greatly help begin to stabilize mood disorders and help calm your mind!

3. TO GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

I’m sure almost everyone can say they’ve had a bout of insomnia or restless sleeping, whether it’s difficulty falling asleep, frequent waking, dream disturbed sleep, restlessness, or difficulty staying asleep. Insomnia is one of the most common conditionals Acupuncture can treat. It can help quiet dreams, calm your mind, and help you have a deeper and more relaxed sleep.

4. TO HELP YOU LOOSE WEIGHT

Yes you heard that right. Acupuncture can strengthen your digestive system, detox your intestines, and remove any digestive sluggishness that might be present. This can help your body lose weight faster and healthier. Along with specialized dietary guidelines and exercise, Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help remove excess weight faster and keep it off permanently. Specific acupuncture points on the Spleen and Stomach meridians along with auricular needles can greatly aid the process of weight loss.

5. LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can treat high blood pressure very effectively, possibly even as effective as medication – without the side effects! Points on the top of the ear and the bottom of the feet can balance the yin and yang of the body, stop dizziness, prevent headaches, and ultimately lower your blood pressure.

6. PREVENTION

The Ancient Chinese believed in preventing illness before it happened. They did this by learning to listen to the subtle warning signs of the body indicating imbalances of yin and yang or qi and blood. Acupuncturists are trained in analyzing these warning signs, treating them, and preventing them from becoming more severe and serious over time.

7. TO LOOK AND FEEL YOUNGER

Not only can TCM increase your energy and improve mood, but facial acupuncture can lift the muscles, plump up the skin, brighten the complexion, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful looking appearance.

8. FOR A HEALTHY PREGNANCY

Acupuncture and herbs are amazing for increasing fertility and ovulation, preventing miscarriage, treating morning sickness, ensuring a healthy pregnancy and helping with delivery! Special points in the lower abdomen can aid fertility while points on the forearm can calm morning sickness.

9. PAIN RELIEF THAT LASTS

Acupuncture is great for stimulating the immune system and circulatory system in traveling to the areas of the body in pain. This helps for faster recovery, increased mobility, and less pain!
