Learn the TOP 9 Acupuncture benefits!
There are so many stories in the press and studies coming out about the benefits of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, the real question you have to ask yourself is “Why haven’t I tried it yet?” Below are 9 reasons why you should give acupuncture a try.
YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL
Chinese Medicine treats you according to your individual needs. The belief is that no two people are alike, so it is impossible to create a few select treatments for everyone. Just because two people experience the same symptoms, doesn’t mean the reason for the symptoms is the same. The benefit of individual treatments is that other symptoms which may not be at the top of your list, will also improve throughout your individualized treatments.
NO NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS
Unlike pharmaceutical medication, acupuncture doesn’t have negative side effects. In our experience, most people feel very calm and relaxed after treatments and generally feel great.
MORE TIME FOR YOU
Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncturists will spend a lot more time with you than your regular physician during your visits. Most practitioners will spend anywhere from 30minutes to 2 hrs with you during your initial consultation and follow up visits last from 30-60 minutes. This means you get highly personalized patient centered care. You will not feel rushed, and you have time to explain your health concerns.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE SICK
Acupuncture is good for everyone, especially if you are feeling well. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine works best for prevention. You do not have to wait until you are sick to come in for treatment. It is part of a plan to stay healthy, along with exercise, nutrition etc.
WORKS ON YOUR EMOTIONAL STABILITY
Acupuncture can treat emotional concerns such as depression, anger, sadness and grief. Some people are just not happy, and acupuncture can assist with lifting your spirit and getting you to take the right steps towards adding happiness, laughter, and joy to your life. We see just as much emotional change as we do with treating people’s pain using acupuncture
Acupuncture is relatively inexpensive when compared to modern western medicine treatments. The cost of medications, hospital visits, surgery, ivf treatments, etc. can cost thousands of dollars each year. Add this up over many years, and the dollars start to add up. There is also the opportunity cost of not being able to work or the limits placed on your life by any health problem. The average cost of an Acupuncture treatment is $75, and the long lasting health benefits make it worth the investment in you.
ARE YOU AN UNKNOWN CASE?
Do you feel that doctors think it’s “ all in your head.” Many people visit us with odd symptoms which don’t make too much sense in Western Medicine. If you have done all the tests (blood, MRI, X-Ray, CT Scans, etc) and nothing comes back abnormal, you may want to try Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. We have people coming in all the time with odd symptoms which get resolved with a different approach.
IT IS FUN
Treatment is a lot of fun, and it is very relaxing. Our patients return frequently to stay healthy because it improves their quality of life. Laughter is the best medicine, and we try to keep things light and relaxed but, we ensure that we are serious about your health. We hear all the time that people are scared of needles, and we treat newbies all the time. After the first hair fine needle, people are surprised to not even notice any pain. All the anxiety is relieved and they wonder why they were afraid in the first place. We can start to work with your body so you can feel the energy moving around. It becomes a lot of fun!
IT IS POPULAR
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is the most popular and widely used medicine in the world. Over 2 Billion people use Traditional Chinese Medicine to get well and stay healthy, and there is a reason that it has stood the test of time.
