Five Reasons to Try Acupuncture

Five Reasons to Try Acupuncture

You can bring all of your concerns to your acupuncturist, even the little ones that seem trivial.  Your acupuncturist works to weave all the details of who you are into a pattern and the right treatment arises from that unique picture.  Your acupuncturist will spend at least an hour during the first visit going into all of this.

Acupuncture is holistic, meaning most people come in with a primary concern (everything from anxiety to arthritis, back pain to “I just don’t feel my best”) and after a course of treatment notice that other areas are improving too – they sleep more soundly, their relationships are better, their thinking is clearer, etc.  In other words, all the side effects are positive.

Acupuncture is preventative medicine.  And not in the sense that the word preventative is often used these days meaning earlier testing and earlier use of pharmaceuticals.  It means actually preventing the body from developing illnesses that may be likely for a person, based on their constitution.

Most people find the actual needling to be deeply relaxing.  Yes, having a needle placed in you can be relaxing because they are tiny, thin and flexible – about the size of a cat’s whisker.

You’ll feel good!  People say it in different ways:  “I’m doing what I need to do to take care of myself and it’s just happening without effort.”  “I feel like my old self again!” “I wake up clear-headed in the morning, even before coffee.” “I’m more patient.”  What would you say if you were truly feeling your best?
