Acupuncture is Safe and Effective
Acupuncture is widely accepted in both Eastern and Western medicine for its use in alleviating back and neck pain, migraines, headaches, and other types of pain. While it promotes relaxation and reduces stress, acupuncture also works to help the brain release the body’s own “feel good” hormones, endorphins, which block pain pathways in the brain naturally. Patients who experience migraines, back or neck pain, and other chronic pain can often enjoy being pain-free without having to take opioids or other medications.
Menopause is another area in which acupuncture is beneficial. Women who are going through menopause often experience depression, insomnia, anxiety, hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, and other negative symptoms. Many women prefer not to use hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to reduce hot flashes and night sweats because of the potential risks. Acupuncture for menopause works to ease symptoms by balancing hormones, reducing stress, and promoting the proper flow of energy through the body’s pathways or meridians. Women enjoy a substantial reduction in hot flashes and night sweats, better sleep, fewer physical and emotional issues, and reduced hair or skin problems.
