5 Things You Should Know About Acupuncture

5 Things You Should Know About Acupuncture

1. It doesn’t hurt!

A lot of people tend to look at acupuncture and quickly think, needles = getting shots = painful, but acupuncture isn’t like this at all. The needles used by acupuncturists are completely different from the type of needles most of us are used to, and most of the time you hardly feel the pins go in. Most people who try acupuncture describe the sensation as a sense of relaxation. When a treatment is taking place, the patient may feel a little pinch or even delicate sensations such as tingling in the body, which are all the usual and standard signs of accurate healing.


2. Acupuncture has great mental health benefits

In addition to physical ailments like pain and sickness, acupuncture can be an excellent tool for tackling mental illnesses like emotional stress and anxiety. One of the immediate results of any acupuncture session is a decrease in stress, which helps many people treat cases of anxiety and other mental disorders without the need for dangerous prescription drugs. Consistent acupuncture appointments can help you reduce your stress over a sustained period of time and can have long-term health benefits.

3. Acupuncture Treats More Than Just Pain

Most Acupuncturists find it discouraging whenever a client cancels their appointment because they are feeling sick. While most people think acupuncture is for things like back-stiffness and other muscular pains, it can actually be utilized as an effective treatment for a myriad of disorders including sicknesses. Acupuncture can effectively treat common illnesses like colds, stuffy noses and stomach viruses.

4. Acupuncture can make you look younger

5. You can feel the benefits of acupuncture right away

Patients who come in for acupuncture typically are looking to treat some sort of physical pain or bodily sickness, and they are often surprised as to how quickly they feel their treatments start to work. By the end of the session, and typically even during the session the patient will experience a mass of endorphins being released by their brain, which has an immediate euphoric effect on them. This is often coupled with stress levels lowering and a sudden rush of energy that sustains itself. These positive feelings have real effects on the patient, including immediate health benefits.
