I Fell Asleep At My Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture sleepYou would think that having sharp needles in your skin will keep you hyper awake. Strangely enough the opposite happens and many people actually fall asleep. Acupuncture is so relaxing and the soothing music in the clinic helps create a relaxing atmosphere too.

This may be the only moment in your hectic day to really relax. After your treatment you should feel more balanced, calmer and in a better state of being.

Even if you don’t fall asleep, you may feel more energized and renewed.

Can Acupuncture Help Me With My Weight Loss?

One of the most difficult health concerns that we have to deal with is problems with our weight.  For many of us, this is been an ongoing problem for most of our lives.  Perhaps we were even overweight when we were children and because of habits that we have had since we were young, it may be difficult for us not to overeat.  Add to that the general lifestyle that most of us lead which is busy and full of sugary snacks and convenient fast food and it is little wonder that we have problems with our weight.

Acupuncture Can Help With A Weight Loss Plan
One thing that can help with our weight loss and suppressing our appetite is the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture.  Although most people think of acupuncture as being a treatment that helps with general health balancing and the relief of pain, it can also do a lot to help us with our weight loss efforts.  It is true that acupuncture is a great method of working naturally with our health but, isn’t taking care of our weight also a part of our natural health?  Let’s examine acupuncture and weight loss and see what it can do for you.

How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture has the effect of bringing our body back within a balanced state, a natural balance that our body needs.  According to traditional Chinese medicine, all of us have channels in our body which transport energy from one part of our body into another.  If our body is in balance, we are able to enjoy a natural flow of this energy, otherwise known as Chi.  Acupuncture is able to manipulate the flow of energy or Chi that is within our body through the insertion of hair thin acupuncture needles.  If this energy is disrupted in some cases, it can help us by suppressing the energy as well.  It does this through acupuncture and also helps by suppressing our appetite. Suppressing the appetite is one the greatest benefits from acupuncture for a weight loss plan. Oftentimes, appetite cravings are what prevent us from losing weight successfully.

Many people who go in for acupuncture for pain or general healing may also be able to enjoy the side benefits of a suppressed appetite through acupuncture as well.  What you will probably realize, however, is that by reducing your appetite through acupuncture, you are able to eat less on a regular basis, have less cravings and find it easier to maintain a healthier weight.

Acupuncture For Weight Loss

I have helped many people successfully lose weight with acupuncture. Weight loss can be difficult and frustrating. Diet pills give you the jitters and your body just seems to be fighting you the whole way. But weight loss will not be complete with acupuncture alone. So acupuncture, proper nutrition and exercise are combined for a highly successful treatment program. Just imagine finally reversing years of weight gain, looking slimmer and feeling more energetic.

Acupuncture can really provide a powerful impact for weight control by curbing your appetite, stopping those food cravings, boosting metabolism, even improving digestion, regulating obesity hormones and finally enhancing the way nutrients are used.

If you have reached a dead end in weight loss, give acupuncture a try. I provide a free consultation and will develop an individualized treatment plan that will fit within your weekly routine. My clinic is located in the Milwaukee Metropolitan area.

Does Acupuncture Really Work?

Often we seek out new things believing the latest is the most helpful.  This is true in a lot of areas in life such as computer technology and is also true when it comes to certain kinds of medical treatments.  But, there were many treatments that were being performed thousands of years ago in Asia that still have proven medical benefits today.  One of those methods is the practice of acupuncture, which has become more popular in Western society.  What exactly is acupuncture and how can it help you with your health concerns?

What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice in which very thin, hair sized needles are inserted at specific points into the body in order to alter the body’s flow of energy.  These channels or meridians which, according to Chinese medicine, run throughout your body and keep everything in line and balanced.  When a channel happens to get out of balance, however, it could cause a problem in the entire body and depending on where the imbalance is occurring, it could affect a specific area of the body.  This is really the essence of yin and yang, a Chinese concept, which are the two forces which regulate almost everything within the human body.

Is Acupuncture Safe?
Many people are nervous about going to the acupuncturist, but actually it is one of the safest forms of medical treatment that there is.  In fact, there are very few problems that can occur as long as a few safety guidelines are followed by the acupuncturist.  The acupuncturist is certified in safe needle technique so there should not be a concern to the patient. This technique would include such things as only using prepackaged, sterile needles and of course understanding how the needles are inserted in the proper areas. The needles are then disposed of safely according to government regulations.CQAeHjFU8AEG9JP

Acupuncture In Addition To Traditional Medicine
Although it has not been totally embraced by all areas of the medical community, acupuncture is actually a relatively safe way for you to enhance your better health through the use of natural medicine.  Many studies have proven that acupuncture actually provides many benefits and that it causes certain changes in a person’s physiology that helps them in the healing process.

So, if you’re having a health conditions that are difficult to manage, acupuncture may be able to help you to get back on the way to better health and vitality.
