Suffering from sinusitus? Get sinus pain relief now with acupuncture!

Are you one of the many people that deal with sinus issues each year? Over 30 million Americans do, so you’re not alone! Sinus pain can result from sinusitis, sinus congestion or allergic reactions.

Sinuses are air pockets located in the cheekbones, between the eyes and the forehead. Small channels connect the sinuses to the nasal passages, allowing mucus to drain into the nose from the sinuses and air to flow into the sinuses from the nose. Sinusitis is a condition when the paranasal sinuses become inflamed. This can cause headaches, tightness of the facial muscles, and increased production/discharge of mucus.

Other symptoms include dizziness and the feeling of a “heavy head,” both of which are the results of congested (or blocked) sinus and other nasal passages. Sometimes nosebleeds are suffered.

Sinus congestion and sinusitis can result from a viral infection, as in the case of a cold. Sinus pain can also arise from allergies to smoke, pollen, mold, pollution or cosmetic fragrances.

Time to try acupuncture!

Acupuncture works to significantly reduce or cure sinus problems. The headache you may have will be relieved instantly! Acupuncture is helpful in giving immediate relief of the symptoms, as well as treating underlying factors. There will also be a swift improvement on the stuffiness, and usually only a few treatments are needed to be of great help.

In the case of viral infections, acupuncture helps to relieve stress and restore balance to your system so that your body can heal itself and return to full health quickly.

Don’t suffer (and sniffle) silently! Let acupuncture treat the root cause, and ease the symptoms of sinus pain!

Chronic Fatigue is Exhausting! Acupuncture Helps Put the Spring in Your Step

Don’t let fatigue bring life to a slow crawl! Get acupuncture!

Fatigue is a very common complaint that brings people to an acupuncturist. A few of the basic reasons for fatigue are stress, not getting enough sleep, poor dietary choices, nutritional deficiencies, being on the go all of the time, and/or too little exercise.

There’s two different kinds of fatigue. Physical fatigue is indicated by a general lethargy or listlessness, while mental fatigue is characterized by a feeling of drowsiness and an inability to pay attention. Acupuncture is extraordinarily helpful with both physical and mental fatigue, as well as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)  — when the tiredness and heavy feeling won’t stop, and headaches and pain are added to the mix of exhaustion.

CFS can happen over time or suddenly come about. People who get CFS over time get more and more tired over weeks or months, suddenly feel fine one day and then feel extremely tired the next. The extreme tiredness may come and go, and in some cases the extreme tiredness never goes away.

There is no reason to suffer needlessly from fatigue, and instead feel relaxed, energized and feel less painAcupuncture is very helpful in the treatment of the symptoms as well as in the underlying causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The most noticeable benefits of acupuncture for CFS include:

  • Less pain
  • Better sleep
  • Relaxation
  • Enhanced immune system
  • Better overall health

Acupuncture helps to improve fatigue immediately, after the first treatment. Often patients remark that for even other primary concerns, fatigue was the first improvement they noticed.

Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system and cause the release of neurotransmitters. Stimulation of certain acupuncture points has been shown to affect areas of the brain that are known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the ‘analytical’ brain, which is responsible for insomnia. Acupuncture also increases nighttime melatonin secretions, and this means better sleep!

Less pain, better sleep, and stress relief — let acupuncture work for you!
