What Is Acupuncture?

Many people are afraid of acupuncture because there are needles involved, and since most of us were scarred as children from the dozens of shots we had to get, we have an inherent dislike for needles. However, the needles acupuncture treatments use are nowhere near the size of hypodermic needles used for shots, nor do they hurt.

Acupuncture instead involves the use of tiny needles which are inserted into the skin at specific points on the body that correlate to organs and functions of the body. The goal of inserting the small acupuncture needles into these precise acupuncture points is to encourage the body’s natural flow of energy through energy channels called meridians.

Acupuncture targets these energy points on the body with the whole goal to remove energy blockages and balance out your energy flow. This is what helps to restore your emotional, mental, and physical well-being. As the energy patterns are opened, and energy production is restored, acupuncture helps improve organ function in order to correct imbalances. Needling acupoints encourage the nervous system to release the body’s natural chemicals into the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles, which affect pain and stimulate healing. The feeling acupuncture needles evoke is usually a slight tingly sensation, which is usually a sign that your acupuncture treatment is working.

Here at Hyde Park Chiropractic Wellness Center in South Chicago, our trained acupuncturists are experienced and knowledgeable. Their goal is to improve your health and well-being through acupuncture therapy, which is an all-natural alternative to prescription drugs. Below, we’ll dive just a bit more in-depth into some of the many wonderful benefits of acupuncture. Contact us for your acupuncture treatment today!

Benefits of Acupuncture

Along with relieving discomfort and improving function, acupuncture is an effective treatment for a number of conditions, injuries, and pain complaints.

  • Pain relief. Many of us suffer from pain, sometimes chronically. When you suffer from chronic pain, your lifestyle is affected, and perhaps even your mental well-being. After all, if you can’t do the things in life you love doing, it can be very depressing. Acupuncture for chronic pain works as an all-natural pain killer, increasing blood flow and kicking into high gear your body’s natural healing powers.
  • Anxiety relief. Acupuncture for anxiety works to release endorphins, as well as serotonin, which is the feel good chemical in your brain that involves mood. When these chemicals are released, you naturally feel better, which helps to push your worries and anxiety to the wayside.
  • Headache and migraine relief. Acupuncture stimulates different systems of the body. In the case of acupuncture for headaches and migraine relief, the needles stimulate your body to release hormones, such as endorphins, that trigger your immune and circulatory system, activating the pathways in the brain, which helps to relieve headaches and migraines.
