Travel Healthy with Acupuncture!

Travel Happy with Acupuncture!

Travel Happy with Acupuncture!

Wherever you’re traveling, acupuncture is a great idea before and after your trip! (And sometimes during!)

Traveling can be so much fun, and it’s always smart to have a plan to keep you healthy! Here’s a helpful travel tip — before your trip, acupuncture treatments work to boost and strengthen your immunity. Acupuncture heals imbalances in your immune system and also restores energy channels that have become disrupted.

Your immune system then functions at an optimal level and your body stays healthy, even if your seatmate is making sniffling sounds.

Another benefit of acupuncture treatments before your trip is motion sickness relief. Motion sickness is very common, especially on boats. When your brain gets conflicting signals, and your eyes sense relative stillness, but your balance and position centers sense motion, this can spell trouble on the high seas, or in the air. Acupuncture treats motion sickness, often with immediate success, preventing the nausea and vertigo. Many cruise ships have licensed, on-board practitioners that can assist you if you are heavily affected by motion sickness.

Are you a nervous traveler? Many people experience nerves before and often during travel. Acupuncture helps with that, too!

Acupuncture is a powerful treatment for relieving anxiety — it is highly effective in treating emotional problems, and it also addresses the physical, relieving the headachesupset stomach, muscle aches, insomnia, and irritability that anxiety and stress can cause.

Avoid Jet Lag and Sleep Well with Acupuncture!

The resulting effect from acupuncture is a feeling of relaxation, calm and an overall sense of well-being. What a great way to start a trip!

After your trip, acupuncture is also a great ally. Resetting the body clock using acupuncture can help ease jet lag symptoms. Getting a treatment can definitely help restore your equilibrium, and relieve fatigue. You’ll want to get acupuncture within 24 hours or so of landing in order for it to be most effective. This will give you an immunity boost, as well!

Acupuncture stimulates blood flow, making it especially helpful in treating the stiffness and soreness associated with jet lag and uncomfortable beds or seats. The body always feels very relaxed afterwards allowing you to have a wonderful night’s sleep.  

Whether you’re traveling or curling up at home with a good book as an escape, get set to stay healthy and enjoy the season with acupuncture!

The Eyes Have It — Acupuncture for Eye Health!

Acupuncture for Healthy Eyes!

Acupuncture for Healthy Eyes!

See your way to better eye health with acupuncture!

Balance is the key to optimum health. Sometimes an imbalance within your body can manifest as an eye problem, just as the health of your eyes is often a reflection of an imbalance or health problem elsewhere in the body.

Acupuncture works to bring your body back into balance. When you are treated for an eye condition with acupuncture, any underlying imbalances that are causing your symptoms will be addressed.  The eye problems will also be treated directly by promoting circulation of Qi (life force) and blood around the eyes.

Common eye problems treated with acupuncture include:

  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
  • Chronic Dry Eyes
  • Macular Degeneration

For some conditions, such as macular degeneration, and other retinal diseases that have limited options for treatment within Western Medicine, acupuncture is the treatment of choice. For other diseases, such as cataracts (in the early stage) and chronic glaucoma, acupuncture can be beneficial as an additional therapy to Western treatment.

Acupuncture helps with glaucoma, dry eye, and more!

Acupuncture helps with glaucoma, dry eye, and more!

Acupuncture can help treat eye conditions such as dry eye syndrome. Dry eye is one disease that can have a considerable impact on visual function. The painful burning, blurry vision and the inability to perform simple activities like reading or driving for any length of time can be the cause of stress and frustration for patients with dry eye.

Acupuncture can help! Studies have shown acupuncture to cause a reduction in the temperature of the eye surface that helps to reduce evaporation of the tears throughout the day.

Acupuncture is also used successfully to treat glaucoma. Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve that is usually caused by higher than normal levels of pressure in the eye. In one study, eye pressure decreased significantly after acupuncture.

Another study showed that acupuncture successful reduced symptoms of allergic and inflammatory eye disease. Your eyes are important! Many people see positive results and benefits of acupuncture on their overall eye health. Acupuncture has proven to be a safe alternative treatment for people who have not found a remedy to their eye problems by traditional therapies.
