The Benefits of Acupuncture and Dry Needling



Some people cringe when they hear the terms "Acupuncture" or "Dry Needling". Acupuncture is performed by placing thin needles into the skin at certain points. The technique predates recorded history, making it one of the oldest health practices in the world! Acupuncture encourages the body to promote healing and improves the function of the body. While acupuncture has been used for pain management in the medical community, it has been used for centuries to aid in many conditions. Before turning to surgery, consider using the age old therapy of acupuncture or dry needling.

Although Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and has a high success rate, the procedure is not for everyone. Make sure you talk to your doctor before starting any treatment. Below are a few common benefits of acupuncture.



REDUCED STRESS

Stress is one of the top reasons people seek acupuncture treatment. Whether it be demands from our job or personal pressures we place on ourselves, nearly 77% of us admit that we experience the physical symptoms of stress. While work is a major trigger, acupuncture has been proven to lower stress hormones and moderate mood to reduce anxiety and improve overall feelings of happiness.

ENHANCED MENTAL CLARITY AND INCREASED ENERGY

Acupuncture patients report enhanced mental clarity and often experience a surge of increased energy. Improved sleep is additional benefit, which is why acupuncture is used to treat sleep disorders like insomnia.
