Or will acupuncture work for you is more likely your question, right? I can tell you that acupuncture has worked for patients for thousands of years. And the last time I checked, things that don’t work, don’t stick around for thousands of years. There’s a reason this medicine has been around that long – it works. And yes, it can work for you, too.
Unless you need surgery or are in a life-or-death situation. Acupuncture can help you heal better and faster after surgery, but it can’t take its place.
And here’s some other fantastic news. You don’t have to believe acupuncture will work for it to do wonders for your mental and physical health. It works on horses and dogs – proving that belief in its success isn’t a factor in its effectiveness.
Acupuncture ignites your body’s healing mechanisms. It also stimulates your body to get back into balance. It works with your body’s intrinsic healing and energetic systems. This isn’t woo-woo; it’s science. Acupuncture and herbal prescriptions can gently trigger your body back into balance, homeostasis, and your healthy natural state of being.
It’s one reason that acupuncture treatments are so relaxing. Most of my patients even fall asleep. Their bodies are so relieved to be brought back to health and balance that it’s possible to let go and completely relax.
Hippocrates, The Father of Medicine said it best, "Natural Forces within us are the true healers of disease."
I believe in gentle, relaxing, effective acupuncture. The body doesn’t like to be screamed at; it likes to be gently coaxed back into true health. Life gets us out of balance, acupuncture and herbal prescriptions get our balance back and ignite true healing.
