Four Reasons (at least) Why You Need Acupuncture This Fall

Stay happy and healthy this Fall with Acupuncture!

Acupuncture is great for the whole family!

Fall is here! Here’s four ways that Acupuncture can boost your health!

Would you like to relieve allergies, boost your immunity, and ease seasonal depression or anxiety?

Try Acupuncture!

About 26 million Americans endure chronic seasonal allergies, while the number of people with milder symptoms may be as high as 40 million, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

Acupuncture is one of the major holistic therapies used for thousands of years to address the underlying energetic relationships in the body that makes those allergic reactions happen. Acupuncture treatments can give immediate relief from the symptoms, and further, it can address the variety of underlying causes.

Best of all, acupuncture is a great way to bring allergy relief and avoid the negative side effects that allergy medications can have.

In addition to allergy relief, acupuncture can boost your immunity. Acupuncture heals imbalances in your immune system and also restores energy channels that have become disrupted. When these channels are open, the immune function functions at an optimal level and your body stays healthy.

Acupuncture enhances the body’s defense mechanisms against viruses and bacteria. It also regulates the activity of white blood cells, which also fight against infection and allergic reactions.

That’s not all that acupuncture can help with — third on the list is seasonal depression.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects over ten million of us in the United States each year. Acupuncture can be very helpful for those who suffer from seasonal depression as it brings the body to a more balanced state, and even prevents complications.

In addition to depression, acupuncture is a powerful treatment for relieving anxiety. It is highly effective in treating emotional problems, and it also addresses the body, relieving the headaches, upset stomach, muscle aches, insomnia, and irritability that anxiety and stress can cause.

Stay healthy and happy, and enjoy the season more with acupuncture!

Boost Your Libido! Acupuncture Can Bring Back the Romance

Spice up your love life with acupuncture!

Spice up your love life with acupuncture!

Your sex life can be a sensitive subject to talk about. But if you can use a little help in the love department, acupuncture can help increase your libido!

Did you know that acupuncture has been used effectively for thousands of years to enhance the sex drive of both women and men?

Acupuncture improves libido by addressing the reasons why it was lost or diminished in the first place.

Stress is a major cause of loss of libido. It stagnates the energy in your body, and can also lower sperm count. Acupuncture is very helpful for decreasing stress — both physical and emotional.

Sometimes an emotional issue that has repressed a person’s energy for years can clear up within just a few acupuncture sessions.

Reactions to medications can also decrease sex drive. Research published in the Journal of Alternative Complementary Medicine found that women who struggled with sex while taking antidepressants had improved libido and lubrication after 12 consecutive weeks of acupuncture treatment. The results are especially encouraging in light of the fact that many medications used to treat depression cause sexual dysfunction in 50–90% of patients.

Better sleep with acupuncture!

Fatigue and lack of sleep are also a large factor in a reduction in one’s sex life. Acupuncture is fantastic at improving sleep quality. It helps increase melatonin production and total sleep time.

It can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep throughout the night. With all those extra zzz’s, your sexual desire and stamina will increase!

Lack of energy can contribute to loss of libido, too. Acupuncture naturally eliminates stressors that block energy channels and allows energy to flow smoothly — increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs.

Acupuncture is very helpful for infertility and impotency issues, too.  It is an effective and 100% natural and safe method of treatment.

If you would like to learn about how acupuncture can help improve your sex drive (and help you sleep!) visit us at www.ctacupuncture.com or call 203-259-1660 to make an appointment.

Don’t Be Sad. Try Acupuncture for Seasonal Depression

Acupuncture Brings Relief from Depression

Acupuncture Brings Relief from Depression

If you suffer from depression, acupuncture can offer effective, holistic care.

Feelings of depression during the changes of season happen to many of us. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects over ten million people in the United States each year. While the true cause of SAD is not known, it is commonly thought that decreased melatonin levels caused from limited exposure to sunlight in the winter are involved, as well as decreased serotonin levels — both may trigger depression.

In addition, our biological clock (circadian rhythm) which lets our body know when to sleep and when to be awake is also disrupted with seasonal changes. Varying sleep patterns often leads to feelings of depression, too.

How do you know if you are depressed? Symptoms of depression include loss of interest or focus, fatigue, changes in eating habits and excessive sleeping, among many others. Depression can cause people to lose pleasure from daily life, complicate other medical conditions, and if serious enough lead to suicide. As with many illnesses, early treatment is more effective and helps prevent the likelihood of serious recurrences.

Seasonal Adjustment with Acupuncture

One of the best ways to treat depression is through regular acupuncture treatments. It can bring the body to a more balanced state, help the body release “feel-good” endorphins and even prevent other medical complications.

Acupuncture is a wonderful addition to Western medical treatments. And for those who wish to bypass prescription drugs, treating depression with acupuncture not only has a positive and holistic effect, it avoids the potential side effects of traditional medication.

Acupuncture — Soothing Relief from Headaches and Migraines

Enjoy life without headache pain with acupuncture!

Headaches be gone! Acupuncture brings relief to headache and migraine sufferers.

Almost everyone gets a headache at some point in time. A headache can ruin your day, and if you get them often, can really get in the way of your daily life.

Acupuncture has been successfully used to relieve headaches and migraines (as well as their underlying causes) for thousands of years, without the side effects that prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause. Acupuncture always looks to the underlying causes as well, and thereby can help to prevent any future occurrences.

Headaches fall into three main categories: tension-type, migraine and cervicogenic. A tension headache is the most common (and usually mildest) type of headache, and can be caused by stress, lack of sleep, bad posture or substance withdrawal, including nicotine and caffeine.

Cervicogenic headaches are the most recently diagnosed type of headache and are musculoskeletal in nature. They may be caused by pain in the neck or spine that is transferred to the head.

Migraines relieved with acupuncture!

Migraines relieved with acupuncture!

Last but not least, and perhaps the most debilitating, is migraine.

Migraine is a condition defined by a painful headache and nausea, often accompanied with an increased sensitivity to light and sound, vomiting and a pulsating sensation, which is usually only present in one side of the head. Typically, a migraine can last from a few hours to as long as three days. Approximately 75% of sufferers are female.

Acupuncture to the rescue! Because “headache” is a blanket term for over 200 conditions that fall into multiple classifications, the symptoms (and treatment) depends on the type of headache. Migraines and headaches can be treated preventatively, and a few treatments will clear up most migraine patterns, permanently.

Each person is evaluated individually – history and other symptoms are taken into consideration, so the treatment points will vary. The treatment is painless and gentle.

Get relief from headache or migraine pain today!
