Is Acupuncture Right for You? Three Questions You Should Ask
If you’ve been following our blog, you know we believe acupuncture can benefit everyone. Whether you’re struggling to get a decent night’s sleep or you want pain relief without the troublesome side effects of medication, acupuncture provides a natural solution to hundreds of problems.
But are you still hesitant to try acupuncture?
Relax. We understand. At one time, all of us had our first acupuncture experience. Since then, we have enjoyed learning more and more about this ancient technique that is both an art and a science. We confess, we get very excited when we talk about it because we’ve seen firsthand how it transforms lives.
Of course, we could sing the praises of acupuncture all day, but when it comes down to it, your decision boils down to just one basic principle:
Is acupuncture right for you?
Of course, we’re biased. We’d love nothing more than to help your body invoke its natural healing properties to make you feel better. We also realize that starting acupuncture is a big decision. Before making your first appointment, try asking yourself these three questions to see if acupuncture is right for you.
1. Have you tried conventional treatments without success?
Let’s get one thing out in the open: we are NOT “anti” Western medicine. In fact, Western medicine has recognized the benefits of acupuncture. If you’ve had difficulty finding relief or solutions through more conventional treatments, perhaps you should consider acupuncture.
2. Are you concerned about the side effects of medications?
Some medications can have serious, potentially dangerous side effects and can even become addictive. Acupuncture doesn’t put anything into your body. Rather, it encourages your body to do what it was designed to do—heal itself.
3. Are you trying to resolve more than one health issue?
Many health problems are related. For example, chronic back pain can cause insomnia because it’s almost impossible to sleep when your back is bothering you. Lack of sleep can present another set of challenges.
One of the main principles behind acupuncture is that all of the body’s systems are interconnected. Restoring blood flow and helping one area will inevitably improve your body’s general overall health.
