Dr. Mindy Boxer – Five Benefits of Consistent Acupuncture Treatments


In a nutshell, traditional Acupuncture, also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM, works under the belief that the body is controlled by a flow of energy called Qi traveling through pathways in the body that are called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that when these pathways become blocked and the energy can’t flow freely, various health problems begin to appear. 

According to Pacific College of Health and Science, which houses one of the Acupuncture schools here in the U.S., “while some practitioners still follow the traditional philosophy of Qi, others have also started incorporating a more integrative approach, supported by research and Western medicine principles. For example, many of today’s Acupuncturists view the Acupuncture points as places that stimulate nerves, invigorating the body’s natural pain fighting and healing processes.”

There are many common ailments treated with Acupuncture including pain relief, allergies, chronic inflammatory conditions, gynecological concerns, anxiety, and sleep disorders. Research also supports acupuncture in helping to support stronger immune and nervous systems. Here are five health benefits of consistent acupuncture treatments.

Stress Relief

With the pandemic and all the changes in the world over the last couple of years, people are desperately looking for ways to reduce the stress in their lives. Acupuncture helps to restore energy and balance by triggering nervous system responses to stress. Research has found that acupuncture lowers stress hormones and improves the mood to help reduce the feeling of anxiety.

Reduced Pain

Acupuncture is often used to supplement other medical treatments or as an alternative to a standard pain treatment option. After an acupuncture treatment, patients often find relieve lasting from several hours to even weeks post-treatment, depending on the severity of the condition. Research has shown acupuncture to be effective for chronic pain conditions like migraines, arthritis, back and neck pain, and even TMJ. Adding consistent treatments helps you keep the pain under control in a natural and pharmaceutical-free way.

Improved Neurological Health

Mental clarity throughout the day can be a challenge sometimes. The brain fog that can come from stress, poor diet, pain, or other health issues can rob us of productivity. And there are other neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s which can be life altering. Clinical research has shown that Acupuncture can improve language and motor skills in patients with neurological issues.

Improved Digestion

Many people today suffer from heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and other digestive challenges. Believe it or not, when your digestive system isn’t working properly it can have an impact on your overall health. As mentioned previously, acupuncture seeks to establish balance throughout the body and this includes balance in the digestive tract. Consistent acupuncture treatments can help regulate digestive health, thus bringing relief from common issues. You don’t have to live with these types of digestive struggles, regular Acupuncture can help!

Now that your stress is less, you are in less pain, your mind is clear and your digestion is on track, it only seems logical that your sleep will improve dramatically.
