Acupuncture is a treatment option originating in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) over 2500 years ago! TCM helps us take a different look at your health, by examining symptoms and concerns through a different lens. Acupuncture is understandably a patient-favourite treatment. Find out how it can support hormones, digestion, skin, and mood - four areas of our health that often reflect what's going on inside the body and provide insight into ways to help you feel better!
Restore Hormone Balance
Hormones are chemical messengers in the body that affect our overall health, mood and mental health, menstrual cycle, digestion, muscle growth and recovery, skin, bone health, immune system, and so much more! Hormones being out of balance is seen as an energy flow issue in TCM. Acupuncture helps restore the natural flow of energy to improve symptoms, and support your body in doing what it does best - heal itself when the paths are available.
Rejuvenate Your Skin
We've said it before, but skin is a mirror reflecting what is going on inside the body. Acupuncture can help rejuvenate the skin in various ways - if it's digestive issues causing your acne, reduce the appearance of scars, for example. It can also reduce fine lines and wrinkles by enhancing circulation and stimulating the production of collagen and leading to brighter complexion.
Support Digestive Wellness
Acupuncture can help relieve constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, and even acid reflux! By promoting proper energy flow, acupuncture helps regulate digestion and reduce inflammation. It also helps with stress management and mental health concerns like anxiety, both of which can impact digestive health. When we are stressed, our digestive system shuts off because we are in fight or flight mode. Acupuncture can help reduce stress and bring our bodies into a parasympathetic state where we can rest and digest - which improves our digestion.
Balance Emotions and Mood
Acupuncture can make a huge difference in mental health and mood. Chinese medicine considers the body as a whole, so the mind and body are not separate. Think about your mood when you are in pain, for example, it's likely that you're more irritable and have a shorter threshold for patience while you're in physical discomfort. This is an example of the mind-body connection. Acupuncture seeks to treat both at the same time, by supporting the body we support the mind and vice versa. Restoring the proper flow of energy allows for balancing mood and emotions. Acupuncture also helps with physical pain, stress management, and digestion (to name a few) - all of these factors can impact how we feel emotionally!
Acupuncture is one of our go-to treatment options, and one of our most popular among patients! Whether you're seeking to optimize hormone function, rejuvenate your skin, improve digestion, or uplift your mood, our approach ensures that every facet of your well-being is addressed.
