Benefits of Acupuncture

The main goal of acupuncture is to promote and restore the balance of energy, which flows throughout the body.  The benefits of acupuncture extend a wide variety of conditions, from emotional disorders to digestive issues.  Read on to find out some of the specific disorders that acupuncture can help alleviate or heal and the vast benefits of acupuncture.

Acupuncture can be used to treat:

  1. Anxiety
  2. Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  3. Migraines
  4. Rheumatoid Arthritis
  5. Depression
  6. Parkinson’s Disease
  7. Nausea & Vomiting
  8. Sinusitis & Asthma


So, these benefits look great, right?  But how does acupuncture actually assist in the healing?  For starters, acupuncture promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites, or “acupoints.”  The most common method to stimulate these acupoints is the insertion of fine needles into the skin.  Oftentimes, electrical stimulation, heat, or pressure can further enhance the benefits.   Acupoint stimulation isn’t just needles, though.

Other methods include:

  1. Manual massage
  2. Heat therapy
  3. Cupping
  4. Topical herbal medicines and liniments


The frequency or number of treatments until you see results depends on the person.  The best way to receive the benefits from acupuncture is to start with a licensed practitioner and continue regular treatments.  There have been many case-controlled studies throughout the years which show several conditions benefiting from acupuncture.  The science behind acupuncture has seen significant gains in the past decades, contributing to the success of many patients.

In addition to physical and emotional benefits, for those of us who enjoy a natural or homeopathic healing process, acupuncture does not include any prescriptions.  Acupuncture is truly a “natural healing” approach to ailments.

Traditional Chinese medicine recognizes the body and mind interacting as one, meaning that emotions have a physiological effect on the body. By channeling the ‘qi’ energy, acupuncture is able to help you relax and live in a more balanced emotional state of mind.
