Are you looking for a safe, natural, drug-free method for achieving pain relief? Do you find that your body doesn’t usually respond well to traditional pain medications? If you answered yes to either of these questions, there is another alternative available for you to consider. While it does involve needles, fortunately, they are not being used to give you shots.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical practice that only gained popularity in North America during the last 50-60 years. It involves the use of small needles, which are strategically placed, just under the skin, in order to relieve pain and bring the body back into a state of balance. When done correctly, acupuncture offers a number of benefits, including:
- Improved sleep and digestion
- Reduced headaches
- Improved mood
- Decreased blood pressure
- Decreased allergy symptoms
- Improved immune system
- Relief from back pain
Even though these benefits are amazing, there are certain times when acupuncture is not your best option for pain relief. For example, if you have a blood disorder or are on blood thinners, another treatment may be a wiser option to pursue.
