Acupuncture is one of the oldest methods of healing practiced today and can cure a host of ailments including chronic pain, neurological disorders, digestive disorders and insomnia. By inserting extremely fine needles into one of the more than 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body, the body’s natural pain killing chemicals are stimulated and blood flow to the area is increased.
In terms of women’s health issues, acupuncture can provide effective treatment for women suffering from menstrual disorders and conditions such as PMS, menstrual irregularity or cramping. These conditions occur when the body’s hormones are imbalanced and need to be corrected. Acupuncture, a safe and natural practice, can improve the circulation of blood in the body, increase the production of endorphins and encephalins and balance the hormonal system. Acupuncture is especially helpful to those suffering from menstrual cramps, as the releasing and stimulating of endorphins and serotonin act as natural pain killers by relaxing muscle contractions and producing feelings of well-being.
Because acupuncture is a calming and relaxing procedure, patients also benefit from decreased heart rate and lower blood pressure.
