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 pain. Acupuncture 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
- 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!
