Acupuncture offers numerous benefits regardless of age or gender. In today’s blog, we will focus on some of the benefits for women.
Alleviates Stress And Reduces Anxiety
Acupuncture is believed to improve the flow of energy through and around your body. It is seen to promote better circulation, which means every cell of your body will get more oxygen and the right amount of nutrients you absorb through the digestive process.
Because of better energy flow and improved circulation, one of the benefits women enjoy from acupuncture treatments is a better response to stress and a reduction in anxiety levels. Stress is a part of life, whether you’re an at-home mom, a student, you’re juggling two or three jobs, or you’re taking care of relatives. Stress is simply a part of everyone’s life, but it doesn’t have to overtake your life!
Acupuncture therapy is a natural way to reduce levels of anxiety you may be feeling, whatever the reason. It could be that you have social anxiety disorder, or you are navigating through certain challenges that are testing you and your endurance. Thankfully, one of the benefits of acupuncture is a release of hormones that are meant to soothe you.
With improved circulation, more oxygen and nourishment to every system in your body, and a release of higher concentrations of hormones designed to help you feel more relaxed, you can enjoy less anxiety after even one acupuncture treatment session.
Diminishes Headaches, Including Migraines
Another benefit of the improved circulation that acupuncture fosters is a reduction in headaches. There are different types of headaches, and different triggers. Migraines are very different from standard headaches, as many of you already know. Regardless, acupuncture therapy has been seen to be effective in diminishing and even eliminating all types of headaches.
If you suffer from frequent or intense headaches, instead of taking the maximum allowed doses of painkillers and potentially harming your stomach or liver, give acupuncture treatment a try. You may find that it reduces your headache symptoms naturally, and you can reduce or even eliminate the number of painkillers you take for your headaches.
If you are trying to get pregnant and have been experiencing difficulty conceiving, acupuncture may help. One of the benefits of acupuncture is that it can improve fertility. Especially if your menstrual cycles are irregular, acupuncture can provide a balancing effect on your reproductive system, resulting in increased chances of getting pregnant.
Reduces Symptoms Associated With The Menstrual Cycle
Some women experience significant pain and discomfort associated with their menstrual cycles. If you fall within this category, you know what we’re talking about. The pain and discomfort can be debilitating, and over-the-counter medicines can sometimes make symptoms worse (or for some women, are simply ineffective).
If you would like to try a different approach, turn to acupuncture therapy. This treatment has been seen to be effective in alleviating symptoms associated with the following conditions:
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Pain during menstruation or in between cycles
- Irregular periods or bleeding
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Missed periods
If you experience pain or irregularities associated with your menstrual cycle, schedule an acupuncture appointment with Acupuncture Works in the Myrtle Beach area. Our specialists are skilled and compassionate, and they will work with you to bring you the relief you need.
Another great benefit that acupuncture brings to women is a boost in mood. If you find yourself dragging, feeling down, lacking in energy, or just feeling blah, a single session of acupuncture therapy can make a big difference in terms of mood improvement. Give it a try!
