3. Supports pain relief in the body
Across the world, people seek acupuncture treatment for the relief of chronic pain, from back to muscle and neck pain. However, acupuncture may benefit and help the musculo-skeletal components of many other conditions including menstrual-related pain and asthma-related muscle tension and discomfort.
4. Electromagnetic energy, stimulation and heat may be used during acupuncture
Alongside acupuncture through fine needles, sometimes your acupuncturist may utilise other techniques to support the flow of energy. These techniques include cupping, heat and the use of an electrical current through the needles.
5. Your body releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain during acupuncture
Your central nervous system is amazing, that responds to stimulation through acupuncture needles. The release of these chemicals is holistically beneficial and may contribute to the body’s ability to self-heal.
6. Supports the reduction of stress and anxiety
After acupuncture needles are applied to key points on the body there is often a release of muscle tension in affected areas. The provided relief allows you to go about your daily life with reduced aches and pains. The treatment itself is a chance to unwind, relax and take a moment out of your busy schedule to focus on your health.
7. May make you sleepy or energized
Funnily enough, it’s not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during acupuncture, or experience extreme relaxation. Other people may feel a burst or hit of energy that can last them throughout the day.
8. You can receive acupuncture on your face
The face, cheeks, brow and skull are included in the 2,000 acupuncture points across the body. Many people receive acupuncture on the face to release tension in the jaw, temples and the muscles surrounding their eyes.
