What Can Acupuncture Treat?
My first blog. There was no question about what to write. For as long as I can remember, when people find out that I am an acupuncturist, the first question is, ‘Can you help with this, or that? I want to respond,’I can’t think of anything I can’t help with’ but that sounds too vague. My response is, ‘go on GOOGLE SCHOLAR and look up what research is out there on that condition and the benefits of acupuncture in treatment.
It’s very simple, when your body energy (Qi) is flowing freely, there is health. When there is a blockage of that energy, there is pain, discomfort, emotional disorders and every other ailment out there. Acupuncture moves Qi and this movement stimulates your body’s natural healing process to restore a balance of mind, body and spirit causing a feeling of wellbeing.
So, when someone comes to see me for a sleep disorder, they are amazed that their digestion is much better. They might have moved their bowels every 4-6 days but now they go every day and feel much better. This is what I mean about the balance of mind, body and spirit. Everything in your body is connected. With better sleep and regular bowel movements, you can imagine their emotions would be regulated also.
I encourage anyone who wants to commit to feeling good; mind, body and spirit to make an appointment with me. At first, you will come once a week for 4-6 weeks, and then we will reevaluate how you feel. I know you will feel great.
