The Benefits Of Acupuncture Are Substantial

One of the big benefits of acupuncture is in the area of pain relief. When your acupuncture body points are stimulated by the insertion of needles, signals are transmitted to your brain which results in the release of endorphins. Endorphins are your body's natural pain killers which are effective in treating things like back pain, arthritis and other pain associated ailments.

Another one of the benefits of acupuncture is in the reduction of anxiety, stress, and depression. Most diseases can be traced to high cortisol levels which are the result of high stress. So one of the big benefits of acupuncture, reduced stress, actually results in preventing many illnesses. Some of the other benefits of acupuncture are listed below:

  • Inflammation reduction
  • Increase in immune system function
  • Increase in your circulation which is good for your blood pressure
  • Better nerve conduction
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Speeds recovery from paralysis
  • Stimulates tissue repair
  • Generates an overall feeling of well being
One of my favorite benefits of acupuncture is that there are no dangerous acupuncture side effects that many prescription medications have.

Acupuncture Is Used To Treat Many Common Conditions

Another great thing about needling your acupuncture body points is that this one treatment can be used to treat an endless variety of conditions. Practitioners know which acupuncture points to stimulate to treat all kinds of different conditions. Just some of these treatments are listed below:
