A different way to health and happiness
Acupuncture is the original whole-person-whole-lifestyle medicine.
The goal of acupuncture in Huddersfield is to restore balance in your mind and your body so you can get back to living life to the full. It’s a very positive model of health and function; the physical, emotional and mental are seen as interdependent and reflect what many people perceive as the connection between the different aspects of their lives.
Acupuncture works to restore the free flow of Qi (vital energy) which may have been blocked by for example, emotional or physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury or illness. Ultra-fine, sterile needles are placed into specific acupuncture points on the body and once there, exert their effects to re-establish the free flow of Qi. Once the Qi starts to be rebalanced, the body’s natural healing response is triggered.
What can acupuncture treat?
Health Benefits of Acupuncture
If you are considering acupuncture for the first time, you may feel curious about these techniques. Here are some of the health benefits you may enjoy if you receive an acupuncture treatment:
One of the primary reasons people seek acupuncture treatment is to reduce their stress levels. Restoring energy balance and triggering nervous system responses is a key factors in lowering the body’s stress reaction., Research has found that acupuncture lowers stress and hormone levels and improves mood to help reduce feelings of anxiety and increase feelings of happiness.
Reduced Back and Joint Pain
Pain relief is one of the top benefits of acupuncture. The technique can reduce tension in the back and neck and alleviate pain in the joints. This is a drug-free way to address common pain complaints. It can also reduce inflammation in these affected areas.
Muscular skeletal problems
Pain relief is one of the main reasons we stop exercising, therefore acupuncture can assist with the management of a top benefit of pain whilst treating the root cause of the problem.
Tennis elbow, golfers elbow, knee, hip, shoulder and hand pain to name a few.
Patients struggling with chronic headaches and migraines who do not want to have prescription medications as part of their treatment protocol may find relief with acupuncture treatments. Several studies reported that acupuncture was effective in reducing both the frequency and severity of headaches among chronic sufferers. It may also be more effective than pain-reducing medications in treating tension headaches.
Enhanced Mental Clarity
Brain fog occurs when stress and other concerns rob an individual of mental clarity, making it difficult to think well. Acupuncture treatment can enhance mental clarity and reduce the risk of problems with brain fog.
Reduce Symptoms of Neurological Disorders
Neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, can have a huge impact on a patient’s life. Acupuncture is an alternative medicine option to help treat these diseases.
Reduce an Individual’s Risk of Falling Ill
Patients who routinely have acupuncture treatment enjoy a reduced risk of getting sick because the treatment supports the body’s natural immune system responses. When the individual is exposed to a virus or bacterium, the body is better able to fight it off, and the person is less likely to fall ill.
Constipation, heartburn, and irritable bowel syndrome are common digestive problems for the modern individual. When your digestive system isn’t working as it should, your overall health and wellness is damaged. Acupuncture treatment helps regulate digestive health and bring relief from these common ailments.
After acupuncture treatment, patients may experience a surge in energy levels. This can help people feel more productive at work and home.
When the body’s energy is in balance and the nervous system is properly stimulated, many people have better abilities to fall asleep at night. Acupuncture has been shown in different trials to benefit people struggling with insomnia, and some results found that acupuncture actually had a greater benefit for patients than sleep medications.
Relief from Allergies
Allergy sufferers can use acupuncture to strengthen their immune response before the start of allergy season. Sometimes when used in conjunction with allergy medications, acupuncture can help reduce the symptoms of allergies once an attack begins.
Controlling Blood Pressure
Rising blood pressure levels are a problem in modern society, especially with high-stress jobs and overall obesity levels on the rise. Regular acupuncture treatment combined with medical treatment for the cardiovascular system can help reduce blood pressure levels. The practice helps support proper heart function and blood flow, and at times it is more effective than medication at controlling blood pressure.
Couples who are trying to conceive a child may have faster results with acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture can actually optimize the production of reproductive hormones, and subsequent treatments can support a healthy pregnancy once a woman conceives. Moxibustion is proven to be successful in turning babies presenting as breech.
Improved Healing After Medical Procedures
Acupuncture can assist people who have had surgery or undergone cancer treatments to heal more quickly after their procedures. The immune system and wellness support achieved through acupuncture trigger the body’s natural healing abilities to speed healing.
