As spring has finally sprung and summer waits temptingly around the corner, here are some ways acupuncture can help you feel great and make the most of this time of year.
Embracing acupuncture can have the following benefits:
• lower your stress levels
Acupuncture is well known for its ability to lower stress. By calming the dominance of fight or flight emotions and physical reactions – which occur when we have too much stress for too long – it can help you find a way to properly relax.
• strengthen your immune system
By strengthening your energy and therefore your immune system you can avoid illness before it starts, rather than dealing with it after it happens.
• improve your digestion and stop the bloat
Acupuncture can help improve circulation and blood flow, making bowel movements more regular and digestion more effective.
• refresh and tone your skin
A natural alternative to Botox, acupuncture is emerging as a leading solution to aging. Facial acupuncture not only targets your skin, but works alongside body acupuncture, therefore giving you an all over treatment.
• help you sleep better
Acupuncture looks at each patient as an individual, regular treatments can be highly effective for people who haven’t found relief in sleep medications or other one-size-fits-all solutions.
• boost your energy
The most common feedback I see in clinic is acupuncture improves energy levels. Better energy, better motivation leads to better choices and a positive cycle. Acupuncture often breaks the negative cycles we find ourselves in and sets us off onto a better path.
If you’ve been meaning to try acupuncture, or if you haven’t had a treatment for a while, embracing acupuncture will be a positive step in the right direction. www.hannahpearn.com
