Acupuncture is a well-established practice that can help to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself, helping with a wide range of health issues. In spite of this, less than 3% of Americans have ever tried it!
In today’s post, Fast Track to Health founder and licensed acupuncturist Stephanie shares seven reasons why you should give it a shot today. Read on to learn more, and to book your acupuncture appointment at our New Jersey wellness center, please contact us!
1. It Can Help Relieve Stress
Regular acupuncture can help to reduce anxiety and stress and encourage deeper relaxation and better sleep. We live in a stressed-out world, so taking care of your body with restorative treatments like acupuncture and massage therapy is crucial!
2. It Comes With No Side Effects
Unlike Western medicine, where people routinely experience adverse side effects from prescriptions and surgeries, acupuncture comes with no side effects! It’s a safe way to invest in your holistic health.
3. It Can Provide Pain Relief
Regular acupuncture can also help with pain management by providing deep pain relief, especially in your back, neck, and knees. Don’t believe us? Visit our New Jersey wellness center and try it yourself today!
4. It Can Improve Fertility
Few people know that, along with regular fertility clinic visits, frequent acupuncture treatments can increase your chances of conceiving!
5. It’s Affordable
Although some acupuncturists charge more than others, community acupuncture treatments (like the ones we offer at Fast Track to Health) are very affordable, running between $20 and $50. Instead of having your own private room, community acupuncture happens in a larger room with several chairs. Even if your insurance plan doesn’t cover acupuncture, choosing this option ensures that it’s easy to afford out-of-pocket!
6. It Doesn’t Hurt!
Some people are afraid to try acupuncture because they’re afraid of needles or they think it will hurt. Although everyone’s pain sensitivity is different, generally speaking, acupuncture is minimally invasive and it won’t hurt more than a tiny pinch when the pin pierces the skin. After it has been placed, you won’t be able to feel it at all!
7. It’s Used Worldwide
Although it’s not popular in America, acupuncture is commonly practiced throughout the rest of the world. It’s been around for thousands of years, and now, people all across Europe, Australia, Asia, and beyond are reaping its many benefits.
