Acupuncture at Holt Holistic Centre
Acupuncture helps us in so many ways for example local acupuncture has been demonstrated to increase the blood flow in an area as well as reducing inflammation and relaxing local muscles, that is why it is beneficial for sore and painful joints and injuries. Acupuncture has a relaxing effect we feel calmer, so we cope better by reducing our tension and the memory of the pain, all of which make our situation worse. So, the acupuncture helps us reset our response to pain and to illness. Therefore one of the most common problems seen by acupuncturists is pain both chronic and acute and acupuncture does offer a strategy for relief.
Recent updates in acupuncture research indicate 50 conditions in which this treatment approach is as effective as other treatments. It would also appear that acupuncture may enhance the effectiveness of some medications maybe by helping our bodies be more receptive to them therefore making them more helpful for us and maybe at some point allowing us to reduce that medication.
Another aspect of acupuncture treatment is it may often multitask, for example a person comes because of their headaches and while this is being treated, they find their digestion has improved and they are sleeping better this is because acupuncture is working on multiple levels for our bodies.
I am always happy to talk about whether acupuncture might be a treatment option for someone as it can be used for a diverse range of health issues. Call or email me and I will contact you back.
