but what else can Acupuncture do?
There are many examples of acupuncture reducing stress levels, decreasing anxiety, and relieving symptoms of depression.
Acupuncture can help activate endorphins – a so-called ‘feel good’ chemical that is one of the body’s natural painkillers.
Going beyond endorphins and relaxation, one can’t help but wonder about the long-term effects of receiving Acupuncture, especially when done on a regular basis. How might regular treatments help patients’ health, especially as they get older? Many of our current major diseases (cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, etc) have stress as a contributing factor in its initiation or progression to a more advanced state. It stands to reason, then, that methods to reduce stress might help in mitigating the disease.
Acupuncture has very deep and profound transformational qualities. At the deepest level, Acupuncture is able to balance one’s Qi to be in alignment with your purpose – “the will of the Tao.” One might describe an Acupuncture point as a little mini-chakra; each needle helps to balance all the chakras. This would explain why people feel so relaxed after a treatment: the struggle is abated, and one is aligned and in balance with one’s deepest purpose.
