Acupuncture is beneficial to the health of the whole body
Calms And Balances Your Neuro-Endocrine Axis
When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.
Opens And Enhances Microcirculation
Acupuncture relaxes blood vessels, allowing oxygen rich blood to reach the tiny vessels that are often ignored by primary circulation patterns. This helps skin glow back to life, glands work optimally, and tissues function at peak levels.
Regulates Vagal Response
Acupuncture has the capacity to regulate the vagus nerve, which tells the body to calm down by releasing acetylcholine. This chemical prompts a number of other chemicals like oxytocin, vasopressin, and prolactin to be secreted. As a result: heart rate slows down, breathing calms, digestion is stimulated, muscles relax, and your capacity to be present with others increases.
Promotes Tissue Healing
Acupuncture regulates the inflammation process and growth factors by increasing blood circulation in affected areas. Wounds heal faster, lymphatic build-up is minimized, scar tissue is alleviated, and your body returns to a healthy state much more easily.
Helps Your Body Sustain Optimal Function
When you apply acupuncture as a weekly therapy for several weeks, your body naturally and gently begins to readjust set points in homeostatic balance. A sense of well-being becomes the welcome side-effect of a body that is functioning optimally.
