There are many reasons why someone might want to try acupuncture. Some people use acupuncture as a way to manage pain, such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, or headaches. Others use it to address a specific health condition, such as asthma, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, infertility, or addiction. Still, others use acupuncture as a way to improve overall health and well-being or to reduce the stress of life.
Acupuncture is generally considered to be a safe and effective treatment option, with a low risk of side effects. It is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as therapeutic massage or physical therapy, to help enhance the overall effectiveness of treatment. Medical doctors frequently refer patients to acupuncture as an alternative to medications, surgery, or injections.
There are thousands of clinical studies measuring the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of disease and pain. Setting up a one-on-one consultation with the team at Indigo Healing Acupuncture is a great way to learn how acupuncture could specifically help you feel your best!
