Wellness with Acupuncture
Written by Jie Chen, L.Ac. (Jackie), Acupuncturist at Bloomfield Total Health Center
Wellness is not just an absence of symptoms or pain. True health is attained by achieving a balance in all of the body’s systems. Most interruptions of balance occur with one or more forms of stress. Stress, untreated, will in time cause many of the symptoms we all experience. Back and neck pain, headache, digestive disorders, urinary dysfunction, autoimmune deficiencies, anxiety, depression and most ailments are a result of long term stress. Research has shown that acupuncture treatments may specifically benefit patients with stress and the effects of stress. Acupuncture is believed to stimulate the body’s nervous system by causing the release of neurochemical messenger molecules. The resulting biochemical messenger changes influence the body’s homeostatic (true balance) mechanisms, thus promoting physical and emotional well-being.
Instead of ignoring your symptoms or constantly reaching for over the counter medications, why not experience the simple benefits of acupuncture? Natural healing should be first. Take advantage of the healing, balancing benefits of acupuncture today.
