How Does Acupuncture Help You?

Few people understand how acupuncture can help them… but you can transform your health and wellbeing with this simple treatment.


What if there was a way to treat all of your health problems at the same time?


If you struggle with autoimmune disease, you can get rid of uncomfortable symptoms that diminish your quality of life. Imagine not having to go through the inconvenience of changing your routine for a disease that most doctors struggle to help.


If you struggle with anxiety and depression, you can clear the fog weighing you down that prevents you from enjoying your life. Imagine being able to wake up in the morning excited for the day, no longer debilitated by daily stresses.


If you struggle with hormones or menopause, you can balance the hormones changes that make you feel out of control. Imagine no longer suffering from the symptoms that make you feel misunderstood by friends, family, and coworkers- you can get back to normal.


Acupuncture helps all this and so much more. It’s a treatment that takes a whole-body health approach by targeting your symptoms with precision… without just covering them up.


But how does it work?


What is vital energy?

Your body is made up of an electromagnetic field that controls the flow of energy. This energy runs through your cells, tissues, and organs to make them work correctly.


This energy flows through meridians, or pathways, throughout your body. Different trigger points in your muscles influence how energy flows through these meridians- they can help your muscles relax, your immune system find calm, or balance your nervous system.


When this energy becomes blocked, your health will begin to fail. You will experience unpleasant symptoms and disease… and not understand why.


Think of your energy as a river- when there’s no blockages, it can flow smoothly with great strength. When there are blockages, the flow becomes weak and struggles to get where it needs to go.


Stress is the biggest factor that affects your vital energy- this will lead to feelings of fatigue, stomach problems, depression, and other painful symptoms. Stress puts blockages in your vital energy stream, making it hard for your body to support your health.


How does acupuncture work?

Electromagnetic fields are influenced by metal towers- think of how cell phones work. A cell phone tower, made with steel, is built to create an electromagnetic field that gives your phone connection.


Acupuncture needles work the same way, but for the electromagnetic field in your body. When inserted into the trigger points that control your energy flow, it helps restore your body system’s connection with this energy.


It takes more than one appointment to get your health back on track, especially if you’ve struggled with severe problems for a long period of time. Just like a therapist cannot guide you through your emotional trauma in one visit, the effects of acupuncture are cumulative.


When you come consistently and follow a plan with your acupuncturist, you will see results that build up as you stick with it.


Does acupuncture hurt?

The worst you’ll feel is a small pinch. Most of the time, people can’t even feel when acupuncture needles are inserted.


The needles are very small, unlike what you would expect from an IV or a blood draw. They are inserted very shallowly, and you won’t be able to feel them once they’re in.


People find acupuncture very relaxing- it gives your nervous system an opportunity to reset and find calm. You might even take a nap while getting your treatment.


If you’ve been struggling with symptoms that throw off your life, you will benefit greatly from acupuncture. Even if you’re not struggling with something specific, but want to prevent disease or improve athletic performance, acupuncture is a great way to get there.
