Do you want to know how to prevent disease and injury? Acupuncture is a solution.
Acupuncturists are in business of preventing disease and injury. Acupuncture is one of the only complimentary practices that looks at the body as a whole and works with the body as a whole no matter what your main complaint is.
Digestion, mental health, sleep, excretion, stress, physical strength are all taken into consideration. For instance, if you are looking for pain relief from a migraine headache, all of your body’s functions are taken into consideration and become part of your treatment. It only makes sense. The ripple effect of one issue is felt throughout the entire body.
There are two main issues; disease and injury. Both issues must be treated the same, because the systems in your body are connected from head to toe. The energy running throughout your body is the secret to your success with health.
Acupuncture is growing in popularity as a tool for Athletics. Athletes already know that they can train their bodies physically to gain physical strength and endurance. Acupuncture is a tool that will help you get there faster and support your greatest physical state longer.
Acupuncture can also enhance healing from over exertion and injury, as well as prevent them from occurring.
Most acupuncturists will urge their patients to regularly boost their immune and energy systems. However, many people think that as long as they don’t have any symptoms, they don’t have disease. So why do you need to work at maintaining your immune and energy systems? Why not wait until you have symptoms? The truth is, once you have the symptoms you are already sick, diseased or injured.
We all know this to be true for pain. We feel it, we know we did something, and now we are suffering.
Why not try to help your body AVOID the injury, or avoid becoming sick? The foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture is based on the knowledge of prevention. We work towards the prevention of illness.
Your good health is up to you. No one is going to “do” it for you. The diagnostic capabilities of Western Medicine is amazing. Put that together with the preventative capabilities of Acupuncture and you have two POWERFUL TOOLS that will help you achieve and stay in optimum health throughout your life.
