Do you know about the health benefits of acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the most commonly practiced modalities of traditional Chinese medicine that has been used for over 5,000 years. The theories and practice behind this medicine are deeply rooted in the body’s physiological healing responses that affect the body and the mind as a whole system. The benefits and effects are simply initiated on the table and are imprinted into your healing system to begin a healing response that you in turn support with your lifestyle and dietary choices. Acupuncture has been proven to successfully treat headaches, fertility issues, morning sickness, nausea, digestive problems, neck pain, back pain, colic, and hypertension.Acupuncture begins your body’s healing process based on the micro trauma to the tissue. Your body senses the needle as a foreign invader, which causes your immune system’s defensive response as well as the activation of more blood flow in that area. Vas
Acupuncture begins your body’s healing process based on the micro trauma to the tissue. Your body senses the needle as a foreign invader, which causes your immune system’s defensive response as well as the activation of more blood flow in that area. Vasodilation of your capillaries occurs around the acupuncture site so the immune cells can be carried there through blood flow.
Acupuncture has a direct impact on your immune system and how well it functions by shutting down the inflammatory reactions, normalizing blood flow, and promoting overall homeostasis. Homeostasis is the point where the body is the most balanced and able to function efficiently and pain-free. Your specific health concerns, your lifestyle habits, and medical history will all help Dr. Charles determine how many treatments it will take to achieve optimal wellness. Most people are unaware that many insurances will actually cover Acupuncture.
