Every year we create resolutions to help us be fitter and healthier but physically and mentally but as January and February slip into March, we could all do with a boost to help us along the way.
One of the best and increasingly popular ways of achieving this is to receive regular acupuncture treatments.
Acupuncture could benefit your health and wellbeing in numerous ways whether it be for a specific ailment either physical or psychological or simply to improve your overall health.
Some people believe acupuncture is for relieving back and neck pain without realising how much it can offer which is why we have compiled a list of 5 other ways in which acupuncture could help you.
Acupuncture for Anxiety
One of the biggest issues facing people today is anxiety, but for many, taking medication is a last resort. Because of the broad range of potential side effects associated with anxiety medications more and more people are turning to acupuncture.
Acupuncture could help calm you physically and mentally, relieving the stress caused by anxiety and allowing your body to return to a state of harmony.
Another issue associated with anxiety can be the inability to stay present and grounded in a world when there is so much going on around you, making your mind race.
Mindfulness and Acupuncture
Practising mindfulness is something that goes hand in hand with dealing with anxiety especially in an increasingly fast paced society.
With so much happening around the globe and in our personal lives it can be hard to stop and care for yourself. This is why acupuncture could help you better understand how your body is feeling. Having the ability to understand when something is wrong with your body will help you to restore balance, keeping you mentally and physically healthy.
Acupuncture for Sleep issues
The most effective way to heal your body is through rest and if you’re not getting your 6 to 8 hours you can’t operate at 100%.
Acupuncture is used by some people to get a better night’s sleep whether it be getting to sleep, staying asleep or getting a more restorative rest. Unlike sleeping medication, acupuncture won’t cause any unpleasant side effects or dependencies; it simply works in unison with your body to promote internal harmony and relaxation.
Acupuncture for Digestion
Another common ailment most people tend to suffer from is poor digestion and consequently, poor bowel movements. This is often down to a number of life choices whether it be poor eating habits, dehydration or even stress.
Some people need help to regulate their digestive system and a process of relaxation can also help you to better understand which lifestyle choice is causing this problem so that you can change this.
Acupuncture for Energy Levels
Finally, the biggest health complaint you will hear people speak about daily is how tired they are and how little energy they have. Whilst most people will turn to quick caffeine fixes such as coffee and energy drinks, these will only provide a temporary solution and cause you to crash soon after.
Acupuncture, by contrast, will not cause any adverse effects in the way other stimulants can. It is perfectly natural and can provide a short term boost.
