Get Safe, Gentle Insomnia Relief with Acupuncture

Do you want safe and effective help with your sleep issues? Try acupuncture!

As many insomnia sufferers know, a lack of sleep means more than a sluggish start the next morning. According to the National Sleep Foundation, it can contribute to problems ranging from weight gain to heart ailments.

In many cases, the consequences of a sleepless night can cause problems in relationships, too — both personal and professional. Acupuncture can help you get a good night’s sleep so you can rise and shine feeling refreshed, and ready to face the day.

Acupuncture has been used for centuries to successfully treat a wide variety of ailments and concerns including sleep disturbances. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory dictates that the body’s energy, or qi, circulates through twelve meridians, which are linked to internal organs and emotions. The heart meridian, for instance, relates to anxiety, the liver meridian to stress and anger, the spleen meridian to worry.

Too much of any of these emotions can influence the energy of our emotional body, and affect our sleeping patterns. If our body’s qi is blocked, it can keep us from falling asleep, prevent REM sleep, and cause us to wake up easily.

Acupuncture can free up energetic blocks, and lead to ideal movement and function throughout the body — essential to a good night’s sleep. 

Acupuncture works by approaching the mind and body holistically to address internal imbalance, encouraging the flow of natural energy, and releasing physical and mental tension.

It also relaxes muscle tension, enhances circulation, and promotes better sleep!

Acupuncture is helpful for treating all sleep problems. The therapy boosts your mood and immune system. It is also effective for the treatment of stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and chronic fatigue.

The best part? Acupuncture is safe, natural, effective and drug-free.

Top Five Reasons To Get Acupuncture This Summer

happy beach coupleBe Healthy and Happy All Summer Long with Acupuncture!

In Chinese medicine, summer is associated with the element of fire, and rightly so. The fiery summer months are when everything in nature has expanded to its peak, and characteristics of the fire element include joy, communication, and connection. So it’s a perfect match when we are celebrating summer with friends, good food, and fun!

However, with all the sun, this fire element can be too much of a good thing. Summer can also bring about some common health ailments, and the heat can make some conditions worse. Acupuncture can definitely help you enjoy the season more, improve your health and overall sense of well-being. But that’s not all!

Here’s the top five reasons why you should get acupuncture this summer.

Reason Number One: Allergy Relief! Enjoy the flowers without the sneezing! Acupuncture is excellent at bringing relief from allergies. Grasses, ragweed, and pollutants can really make seasonal allergies flare up. Acupuncture can bring relief in often just one session.

Reason Number Two: Acupuncture Soothes Rosacea Symptoms. Heat and humidity can make Rosacea flare up, and acupuncture systemically reduces the inflammation response in the body. It also stimulates the brain to release serotonin and endorphins, which work to reduce stress levels, which in turn assists with reducing symptoms.

Reason Number Three: Sunburn — Acupuncture Beats the Heat. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, sunburn is a trapping of damp heat in the skin that must be treated by releasing the heat and soothing the accompanying pain. In addition, acupuncture can also give the immune system a boost, and relieve the general fatigue and malaise often present after a major sun exposure.

Enjoy the beach, and remember the sunscreen!

Reason Number Four: Get That Beach Body! Acupuncture works as an appetite suppressant, aids in digestion, and helps boost your metabolism. Acupuncture helps balance hormones, and decreases the hormones that contribute to weight gain. Regular acupuncture treatments have also been shown to help tone and shrink the stomach muscle, and this helps you feel full faster.

Reason Number Five: RELAXATION. Acupuncture helps to release neurotransmitters such as endorphins. They are our “feel good” hormones that invite relaxation and peacefulness during treatments. Acupuncture is a fantastic way to release built up stress, and head off tension before it starts to cause trouble.

Summer is here for such a short time — why not let acupuncture help you enjoy it to the fullest?
