Five Things You Didn’t Know Acupuncture Could Treat

When you think of the conditions that acupuncture can treat, what comes to mind? Pain? Stress? Headaches? While these are all conditions that acupuncture can cure, this is only the beginning.

Acupuncture uses very thin needles placed at specific points on your body to rebalance and promote energy flow. Acupuncture is an incredibly versatile technique that can be used to treat many different types of ailments. Here are five conditions that you may not expect acupuncture can treat:

1. Gastrointestinal Conditions

If you suffer from digestive problems and haven’t found any success with conventional treatments, acupuncture may be just the solution. It can help your digestive tract by reducing inflammation in the stomach and pancreas.

Your acupuncturists will target specific points on your body that are related to your metabolism, intestine function and stomach acidity to alleviate your digestive problems.

2. Addiction

Acupuncture can be an effective supplemental treatment option for those in a detox program. Auricular acupuncture is the specific technique used in which the needle is inserted into the patient’s ear.

According to The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, it helps patients achieve “a more optimistic and cooperative attitude toward the process of recovery, as well as reductions in cravings, anxiety, sleep disturbance and need for pharmaceuticals.”

3. Cough/Asthma

Perhaps one of the top benefits of using acupuncture instead of medication is avoiding all of the unwanted side effects. When it comes to sicknesses like asthma, you will be hard-pressed to find a solution that doesn’t come with side effects.

This isn’t the case with acupuncture. It will provide relief from chest congestion, breathing problems, coughing and more without side effects.

4. Irregular Menstrual Cycles

It may seem like a bit of a wonder how hormones and tiny needles could be related. However, acupuncture can be used to regulate periods by balancing your hormone levels.

It does this by regulating the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Ovarian (HPO) axis. This acts as a feedback loop between the brain and the ovaries. Acupuncture ensures that the HPO axis is doing its job and hormones are balanced.

5. Depression, Anxiety and Insomnia

Many people see an acupuncturist to improve their overall well-being and promote relaxation. This is because acupuncture can actually lower your cortisol levels as it promotes oxygen flow to your muscles.

In the same way, it can help combat symptoms of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety by allowing Qi (vital energy) to flow throughout your body.

Acupuncture has the power to alleviate many conditions by targeting specific areas and promoting energy flow. You can learn more about additional conditions we treat on our Acupuncture page.
