Acupuncture is one of the most sought-after treatments in integrative medicine in Washington, and there are many reasons why.
When many people think of acupuncture, they think of pain relief, and while acupuncture is certainly an effective tool for pain management, it comes with many other benefits as well. In our last blog, we talked about how acupuncture may help to improve your mood, reduce your migraines and give you a better night’s sleep. The following is a list of a few more exciting benefits that are associated with acupuncture:
#4. Acid Reflux and Heartburn Management
Acid reflux and heartburn make it almost impossible to enjoy a meal without dreading what’s to come in the near future. Acupuncture helps to speed up digestion and regulates the secretion of acid. Studies have shown that regular acupuncture sessions can help to soothe heartburn and acid reflux more effectively than upping your medication.
#5. Strong Immune System
Cold and flu season is here at last, and if you want to avoid getting sick, you may want to think about acupuncture. Acupuncture helps to bring the body into balance, which in turn, can help to make your immune system strong and effective.
#6. Increased Weight Loss
One of the biggest obstacles in the struggle to lose weight is stress. Eating makes us feel good, and when we are stressed, we will do just about anything to feel good. Acupuncture promotes the release of endorphins, which are the hormones that make us feel good. The better you feel, the less you’ll eat to make yourself feel better. Acupuncture can also give you more energy, which will make it easy for you to get active.
