7 Ways Acupuncture Can Change Your Life in 2013

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a good ending to 2012 and is looking forward to a fresh future. Sorry I have not been blogging the past few months- things tend to get crazy around the holidays. If you are already a patient of Fine Balance then most likely you are an acupuncture believer. But, for those that may be skeptical or want to know more ways how acupuncture can help you; this blog is for you.

1.       It can help you de-stress

Acupuncture helps take the edge off and turn off your “fight or flight” mode. It removes you from a sympathetic nervous state which so many of us find ourselves. By mellowing out the nervous system, acupuncture can help you feel less affected by stress and better able to handle stressful events.

2.       It can help give you more energy

Most people after an acupuncture treatment find themselves in a blissful relaxed state, however the after effect is increased energy. Many people report having more energy in the hours, days and even weeks after an acupuncture treatment.

3.       It will clear your head and improve focus

In addition to additional physical energy, many people observe improved mental clarity and focus after acupuncture. It is as if the fogginess in your brain as been cleared out. You may feel more motivated about tackling items and seem to find yourself staying on task better at work.

4.       It can help you sleep

This one is so important. Insomnia is a very common complaint and acupuncture can be effective at helping. Additionally, patients who aren’t seeking acupuncture for insomnia notice improvement in sleep quality. Majority of patients will report having a heavy and restful night sleep immediately following treatment.

5.       It will give you a topic to talk about at parties

Everyone seems curious about acupuncture-  Does it hurt? Did you get needles in your face?  Does it work? These are common questions people have about acupuncture. You will be an instant sensation if you share your experience about acupuncture. People love sharing their own acupuncture experiences as well so get talking J

6.       It will make you more patient and calm

Acupuncture is an ongoing process that requires an investment of time and willingness to let go of our desire for instant results. Acupuncture works but it isn’t a quick fix. It produces long lasting effects but it doesn’t produce results overnight. This will make you a more patient person. In addition, acupuncture has a calming effect that can last days, weeks or even months in some patients.

7.       It will remind you that you have the power to heal yourself

Acupuncture isn’t a magic pill; it doesn’t add or subtract anything but rather prompts your body to do what it already knows how to do. It reminds you that you have the power to heal yourself. By using a therapy like acupuncture, which embraces rather than ignores our innate healing capacity, you demonstrate you believe in yourself. We all have this amazing capability!
