Here at our chiropractic wellness centers in Tallahassee, Florida, we pride ourselves in approaching healing in a holistic and whole-body way, believing that wellness starts from within. We do not want to simply ease symptoms, we want to address the root of the problem. If you’re looking for natural remedies for your health needs, there are many reasons why you might consider acupuncture as an approach to their healing. We offer both traditional and needle-free acupuncture techniques.

According to the National Institute of Health’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, acupuncture relieves the pain and discomfort associated with a variety of health conditions. Following are just some of the ways our Tallahassee acupuncturists can improve your quality of life.

1. Reduced Stress

Acupuncture has been shown to significantly reduce stress levels by balancing energy and lowering stress hormone levels which leads to an improved mood and reduced feelings of anxiety and depression.

2. Reduced Neck, Back and Joint Pain

One of the most common reasons acupuncture is sought after is for pain relief. Acupuncture can reduce the tension felt in the back, neck and joints by reducing inflammation. This is an excellent option for drug-free pain relief.

3. Relief From Headaches

Several studies have shown that acupuncture can be more effective than prescription medications in reducing both the frequency and the severity of recurring headaches. This is a great treatment option for those suffering from migraines or tension headaches.

4. Reduced Symptoms of PMS

Ultimately, acupuncture works to rebalance the body. Since menstrual pain is could be the result of imbalances in the body, acupuncture can alleviate many of the symptoms that come with PMS.

5. Reduced Symptoms of Neurological Disorders

Clinical studies have shown an improvement in both language and motor function in patients with neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

6. Reduced Risk of Illness

Acupuncture works to support the body’s natural immunity. Thus, patients who regularly receive the treatment are less likely to contract illnesses and are better able to fight off seasonal allergies.

7. Improved Digestion

Acupuncture can help to regulate your digestive system easing symptoms of constipation, heartburn, and irritable bowel syndrome. In addition, treatment can increase metabolism and suppress hunger, aiding in weight loss.

8. Increased Energy

Immediately following an acupuncture treatment, patients may feel a burst of energy. In addition, the treatment can improve one’s quality of sleep which will result in more consistent energy throughout each day.

9. Improved Healing

For those who have recently had surgery or undergone intense medical procedures such as cancer treatments, acupuncture is a natural way to speed up the recovery process by triggering the body’s natural healing processes.

10. Fight Addiction

Acupuncture has been shown to lower cortisol levels and balance dopamine levels. The balancing of these particular hormones has been proven to reduce the urge to reach for addictive substances such as tobacco or alcohol.
