It's that time of the month again, and if you are a woman, you know what I am referring to. You can tell because you are feeling painful periods, menstrual cramps, headaches, mood swings, and irritability. Several million women in the United States alone report that they suffer from these and other PMS symptoms 7-10 days each month. Acupuncture can bring relief!
Most people spend at least two hours a day on a mobile device and as much as eight to 10 hours in front of a computer screen at work. But do you every think about how are those activities affecting your body?
Studies have shown that acupuncture is very effective for the majority of people with chronic low back pain. To treat back pain, your acupuncturist will insert extremely fine needles into the skin at specific points along meridians. Patients have reported a significant reduction in pain with acupuncture, especially when paired with Chinese herbs. Certainly, these new guidelines show that doctors now agree: Acupuncture is very unlikely to cause any harm and may improve back pain.
Acupuncture is well known for its effectiveness in reducing most types of pain, including pain from sports-related injuries. If you have suffered an injury or would like to speed your post surgical recovery, acupuncture can help.
