Sydney acupuncture improves the body’s functioning and recovery processes through the stimulation of specific acupuncture points with fine needles inserted into the skin. It’s a safe, natural way to treat common health issues and can be used in conjunction with conventional medicines.
Here are seven common health concerns that acupuncture is used to treat:
Acupuncture is widely-renowned for effectively treating chronic pain that may stem from stress, muscle tightness, pregnancy or injury. Acupuncture is particularly good for joint pain, making it a popular natural treatment amongst older patients and those who suffer from sporting injuries.
Acupuncture is commonly used to treat arthritis and ease associated pain. When inserted into the correct pressure points, the acupuncture needles cause endorphins to be released – which then reduces the pain in the area. Bee Venom Acupuncture (BVA) is a type acupuncture that involves the application of bee venom to the pressure point, and there has been a positive link between BVA and the reduced arthritis pain.
3.Nausea and vomiting
In addition to treating chronic pain and arthritis, acupuncture is also effective against vomiting and nausea. Those who are recovering from surgery and experiencing postoperative nausea and vomiting would find acupuncture to be a great option. It’s also a good alternative for chemotherapy patients experiencing similar side-effects.
4.Migraines and Headaches
Acupuncture effectively reduces the intensity and frequency of headaches and migraines and has no serious side effects compared conventional migraine medicine.
If not treated quickly, insomnia can develop into a serious long-term health concern and start to influence normal bodily functions. Acupuncture safely reduces the frequency of insomnia episodes by increasing the level of nocturnal melatonin that the body produces. Another major benefit is that acupuncture has no negative side effects – unlike traditional sleep medications.
Gastrointestinal disorders such as GERD, irritable bowel syndrome, and chronic liver disease are very commonly treated with acupuncture and provide a natural, relatively side-effect free alternative to conventional medications.
7.Pregnancy, Labor & Postpartum Health
It’s quite common for doctors are now recommending acupuncture as a treatment to aid physical and emotional well-being during pregnancy. It’s a safe treatment for many common pregnancy symptoms and is equally as effective in treating post-pregnancy symptoms.
