Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used in Eastern medicine for millennia for many medical conditions and illnesses. It is one of the primary treatment methods in Asia, and for good reason. Regardless of why you are getting acupuncture, there are some health benefits that everyone might enjoy.

Regulates Hormones

There are about 50 hormones that help regulate all of the many processes that make up your body’s function. Health problems are caused or made worse by imbalances in hormones. It doesn’t matter what your gender, you will have hormonal changes and surges at certain times in your life. Acupuncture regulates hormones so that your overall health is improved.

When do your hormones need extra help? Almost anyone of any gender can have a hormonal imbalance causing health issues. Both men and women can experience hormonal changes due to medications or certain medical conditions or disorders. Both genders also go through hormonal changes later in life, called andropause for men and menopause for women.

Regulates Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are chemical substances that relay messages between the nerves, your brain, and the rest of your body. Without neurotransmitters, your body cannot function properly. Some neurotransmitters are responsible for mood or cognitive ability, which leads to mental illness. Acupuncture regulates neurotransmitters, so your body functions at optimal health.

Boosts Your Immune System

Although it isn’t necessarily understood why, studies have made it clear that acupuncture boosts the immune system. While you’re not likely to get acupuncture just for this benefit, it is a bonus that almost everyone enjoys for some time after their treatment.If you are interested in trying acupuncture for yourself or if you have more questions about whether or not it is right for you, contact us today for more information.
