Why get acupuncture when you're healthy?Acupuncture as Preventative Medicine!
When you’re already healthy getting acupuncture should be an integral part of your preventative
medicine plan! Receiving acupuncture even once is great for you, improving blood flow and boosting energy while balancing immunity and releasing endorphins. You’ll always sleep better on a night after getting acupuncture! Getting acupuncture on a regular basis leads to the following positive benefits: enhanced resiliency (handle stress better) while also sleeping better, reduce and even eliminate chronic tension and aches, regulate your digestion while balancing metabolism, balance hormones, improve your memory and learning while enhancing your mood and many other benefits. The time spent relaxing during acupuncture often results in falling asleep and taking a nap, experiencing a deep meditative state and/or enjoying time for self-awareness and self-reflection.
How will acupuncture help you enhance and improve your health? Acupuncture has the following effects on your the body on the physiological and biochemical level: increased peripheral and abdominal circulation, enhanced blood flow to muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments helps them heal faster, decreased heart rate and reducing blood pressure, regulating the autonomic nervous system (shifting you from the sympathetic “fight or flight or freeze response” stress response into the parasympathetic nervous system “rest & digest” relaxation response. Acupuncture regulates and normalizes the gastro-intestinal motility which improves digestion and absorption of nutrients. Acupuncture regulates the immune system, preventing illnesses by both improving your resistance to outside pathogens while also making you better able to fight infections. Acupuncture also calms down an overreactive immune system, therefore acupuncture can potentially prevent the development of auto-immune disorders. Acupuncture improves mood by balancing hormones and neurotransmitters via the HPA Axis or the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
