Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese method used to relieve some health conditions and symptoms, such as pain. An acupuncturist inserts very thin steel needles into the patient’s skin at multiple “acupoints.” The needles rebalance the body’s energy, or qi, and prompt the body to release natural chemicals to fight the illness or symptom.

The practice comes from traditional Chinese medicine. Scientific studies have confirmed its effectiveness for some conditions.

The ancient practice of acupuncture started in China approximately 3000 years ago. Early documentation describes acupuncture as an organized system of diagnosis and treatment.

Acupuncture is referenced in The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, which dates back to 100 BCE. By this time, the Qi (vital energy or life force) flow channels were well established, and the information likely stemmed from a compilation of traditions passed down over centuries.9 Gradually, the practice of acupuncture was honed and insertion points became more specified, until it became a standard practice in China alongside massage, diet, and herbs.

Let’s explore the benefits of acupuncture, but understand that many of the benefits closely resemble the benefits of chiropractic care. This is why many Doctors of Chiropractic seek to offer acupuncture in their practices, because the combination of both is a powerful health enhancing process.

Reduced Stress

Stress is one of the top reasons people explore the idea of adding acupuncture treatment to their personal health regimen. Stress comes at us from professional and personal directions and more than two-thirds of adults admit to experiencing physical symptoms as a result of stress.

Acupuncture has a long history of lowering stress hormones and moderating a person’s mood resulting in a reduction of anxiety and improved overall feelings of happiness.

Reduced Back Pain

Many people suffer from neck tension, joint pain in their hands and arms, or back pain, and it’s easy to understand why. Lot’s of sitting over a keyboard, carrying a bag or business case, and the poor posture related to cellphone usage. Acupuncture provides drug-free pain relief for these situations while also reducing swelling and inflammation.

Acupuncture needles are super-thin and flexible, and patients hardly feel them when inserted. In some instances, low levels of electricity can be conducted through an acupuncture needle.

Relief from Headaches

While acupuncture has been used to treat headaches for thousands of years, there are more recent studies showing that acupuncture can reduce days with migraines and may have lasting effects. With the most common side effects being a sense of euphoria and relaxation, acupuncture is a choice treatment for those seeking a less invasive, drug-free option.
