What are the Benefits of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is effective for treating an enormously wide-range of conditions without causing major side-effects. Its effects are more like a shotgun than a laser; you can aim it, but its effects go everywhere. The way that acupuncture is beneficial to almost everyone is associated with general health enhancement: more energy, less stress, better sleep, heightened mental clarity, improved moods, better digestion and a greater sense of inner calm and relaxation.
Acupuncture is particularly helpful for people with chronic diseases, meaning conditions that can be managed but not cured. Often these people need to take medications with multiple side-effects. It can greatly improve their quality of life without creating anymore side-effects.
Just as acupuncture is good for assuaging chronic diseases, it is also very effective for treating everyday, common problems/complaints such as headaches, back pain, joint discomfort, colds/flu, and undue muscular tension and stress.
Acupuncture is not like other forms of medicine. It initiates processes inside the body that we cannot fully comprehend. Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with almost any other therapy as it doesn’t interact with other interventions. It is likely that it will help almost any problem to some degree, even if it can’t cure it entirely.
