Teachers Can Find Pain Relief with Acupuncture

Let’s face it. Teachers can put a lot of pressure on their students. But even more so, they put a lot of pressure on their own bodies. With hours spent grading papers, staring at computer screens, bending over and walking around, it’s no surprise that many educators are left with aching legs, back pain and migraines. The good news? There is a solution toward better health and wellness—and it’s called acupuncture.

The Best Pain Relief for Teachers

When you’re looking to relieve muscle pain, anxiety and other disorders, you can experience that and more with acupuncture. Curious why? Here are some of the top questions from people like you who have yet to experience the long-lasting benefits.

What is acupuncture?
This time-tested treatment involves the insertion of fine needles into specific areas of influence in the body, which help to provoke local healing in tissue and multiple body systems.

How does it work?

The process works by engaging the central nervous system (brain/spine) through fascia (connective tissue) and peripheral nerves. In other words, once a needle is inserted there’s a local response in the tissue, which is measured as influx of red blood cells, platelet rich plasma, white blood cells, cytokines and nutritional factors. This response is critical to aiding tissue restoration and restored function in different body systems, most notably the endocrine system, immune system, cardiovascular system and nervous system.

Why is acupuncture great for teachers?

The effects help to keep the body comforted and operating at the highest levels of output, preventing muscle tightening, fascia adhesions, aching legs, body fatigue, and increasing overall tolerance.

What’s the difference between traditional pain relief and acupuncture?

The studies are all conclusive: ACUPUNCTURE WORKS for pain—and the way it works is what differentiates it from traditional techniques. Traditional processes rely heavily on pharmaceuticals to inhibit pain receptors, but acupuncture works with the internal mechanism of body repair to actually change the internal environments! This means white blood cells, growth factors, platelet rich plasma, red blood cells all work together to decrease inflammation, restore cell function and health, and permanently fix the pain problem. For teachers, that means no more neck and back pain, decreased muscle tension and greater chances of migraine relief.

How often do you need the treatments?

Acupuncture can be received up to three times per week in the acute phase of pain or injury, then adjusted as tissue begins to respond and repair. For chronic conditions, treatment is given one to two times per week, depending on what issues are being addressed.

Is there a right or wrong time to schedule an appointment?

The procedure typically will work well with any teacher’s schools schedule. You’ll need some free time after your session to relax, repair and eat a big meal. This will aid in the pain relief and encourage positive, long-term results.

Are there any contraindications you should be aware of?

Acupuncture is an excellent option for most people. However, if you have severe anemia, a weakened heart, bleeding disorders or are suffering from panic/manic disorders, it is not recommended.

If you’re a teacher who’d like to avoid going under the knife or taking pills for muscle tension, aching legs, back pain relief, stress and migraine relief, you may want to join the more than 14 million Americans who have tried acupuncture. You just might find a few little needles go a long way!
