Strengthens The Immune System
Acupuncture has been shown to raise blood levels of white blood cells, prostaglandins, gamma globulin, and overall antibody levels, suggesting that acupuncture has the effect of strengthening the body’s immune system. Subsequently it can be highly effective for the management and even reversal of autoimmune conditions.
Increases Blood Circulation
Acupuncture has been shown to increase circulation in the body, especially to the areas adjacent to points being needled. The body will release vasodilators in response to acupuncture, which is useful in healing injuries, minimizing scar tissues, promoting cell growth and organ function, etc.
Stimulates The Release Of Endorphins
Acupuncture is extremely effective in pain management because it stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. Endorphins are believed to be 10x stronger than morphine, the strongest pharmaceutical painkiller available.
Raises levels Of Important Neurotransmitters
Acupuncture has been shown to affect neurotransmitter levels such as the “happy hormone” serotonin. Low serotonin levels are associated with insomnia, depression, sugar cravings, obesity, addiction, and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). By raising serotonin to normal levels, acupuncture can prevent or fight off these problems. It can also explain why people feel great after a treatment.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, natural way to rejuvenate the face. It is a non-surgical, anti-aging treatment that includes the use of ultra-thin acupuncture needles to increase circulation and stimulate collagen production in the face. Within a series of treatments, wrinkles and lines can disappear, sagginess can be minimized, dark circles can be reduced, and the face will have a healthier glow. Treatments are painless and there are no side effects like those associated with facelifts or Botox. Other TCM modalities such as facial massage, guasha, herbal face masks and cupping may also be used in conjunction with the acupuncture.
