How can acupuncture benefit you?

acupuncture canmoreAcupuncture has been practiced for literally thousands of years and during this time has been used to treat many differing conditions. Because of this long history and the unique way Acupuncture diagnoses, it is an extremely versatile modality.

Acupuncture has a long history of treating medical conditions and complaints such as asthma, headaches, arthritis and high blood pressure. The World Health Organization now lists many conditions that acupuncture can treat and as the research continues this list grows longer.

However, the benefits of acupuncture don’t stop here. In a very basic understanding acupuncture re-balances the body. Where energy (or Qi) has become deficient it is supplemented and where it is in excess it is removed. In this way Acupuncture brings the body back into a state of balance allowing the body to heal itself, making the body more efficient. This ability not only helps with disease but can also increase our overall well being or general vitality.

Acupuncture is often used to improve athletic performance again by improving the bodies ability to function more efficiently and to recover more fully. This can often be accomplished with just a generalized treatment however, the treatment is also targeted to each specific patient, this means you receive exactly what you need to help you and your individual needs.

At the other end of the scale Acupuncture can also be used for general relaxation or helping us deal with those excessive emotions. In a world where stress is common place having a regular practice to deal with its negative effects becomes increasingly important. Although many acu-points have a general calming effect the unique requirements of the patient are always taken into account. This will not only calm the body and mind but can also strengthen our ability to deal with life and all it can throw at us.

Acupuncture is a unique modality, due to its approach and versatility, maybe its greatest achievement is its ability to prevent disease in the first place so we can lead a full and healthy life.
