5 Benefits of Acupuncture

Blog

The art of acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. It is a form of traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote healing.

It works by activating specific points on the body that are connected to the flow of energy, known as Qi in traditional Chinese medicine. Imbalances or blockages in the flow of Qi can lead to various health problems, and acupuncture can help restore balance and promote healing.

Now to the good stuff… Here are 5 Benefits of Acupuncture:

1.) Restore balance in the body

Qi is like energy that flows throughout your body and is a major core idea behind acupuncture. Much like your circulatory system for blood, the 12 meridians circulate your Qi, or energy. This circulation restores balance and flow within yourself. 

2.) Reduce stress and increase energy

There are specific points utilized for relaxation purposes, including the point “yin tang,” which is located directly between your eyebrows. Furthermore, Qi, or energy, flows more freely after an acupuncture visit.

3.) Reduce pain

There are specific acupuncture points that target back pain, neck pain, and joint pain, including knees, elbows, and TMJ pain. Acupuncture provides a holistic alternative to surgery or drugs for pain and repetitive strain injuries. 

4.) Reduce Muscle Tightness

Acupuncture needles can be used to target specific muscle groups that may be tight. Ah shi points target knots within tight muscles, causing knots to dissipate. 

5.) Relief from headaches

There are specific acupuncture points that help provide relief from headaches and even migraines. Acupuncture has been a successful option for those who are headache prone. It offers a less invasive, long-term option.

I recently did my first Chiro appointment with Dr. Jenna and I loved it!! She was very kind and clear during the whole process as I was a bit nervous because I wasn’t sure what to expect. I automatically felt so much better after my appointment and will definitely be coming back! (:

From the second you walk into the door you’re met with such a calming smell that instantly makes your shoulders relax. I’ve been adjusted quite a few times, but I’ve never felt more at rest and peace while doing so. I will be telling everyone I know to come see Jenna!

Dr Jenna was just what I needed. I came into Texas from Washington state in our RV in a boot, looking for a chiropractor, during Christmas and New Years and left Texas with an aligned body and happy feet. I love that she offered acupuncture, and ear seeds. Also, she is a firm believer in increasing magnesium, so am I. So important for a body to heal, whole. I love her goal to reverse bodily dysfunction and encourage self healing which is God’s design for all of us. May this be your best/blessed year~2024 KimC

Dr. Jenna has been so kind and accommodating - she makes an effort to treat each individual person according to their specific needs and it makes all the difference! I’m pregnant with twins and Dr. Jenna’s treatments have been a HUGE help in keeping all the expected (and unexpected) discomforts at bay. So thankful for her!!

Dr. Carter provides great chiropractic care. She takes the time to diagnose and treat your issues, not a rush you in and rush you out type of practice. I highly recommend.

Dr. Jenna is the best! She does a complete check of your structure and adjusts accordingly, rather than just asking you what hurts. Her adjustments are gentle and she is kind!
