Acupuncture at Holistic Health & Chiropractic of Frankfort
What is it?
Acupuncture is a practice that involves inserting hair-like needles into the skin in order to stimulate specific energy points that can restore balance to normal physiological function. While acupuncture may be best known for its ability to reduce and control pain, it is also a useful tool for treating many common and uncommon diseases. Acupuncture can reduce stress levels and improve circulation, digestion, detoxification, and elimination of wastes from the body. Using acupuncture lowers the need for conventional pain-killing drugs and thus reduces the risk of side effects associated with those drugs!
Stress is a major reason for health problems. Acupuncture can be especially effective at treating tension headaches, panic/anxiety disorders, fatigue, weight gain, and muscle tension/soreness. While the effects of stress differ from person to person, acupuncture allows patients to feel naturally calm and pain-free, even after treatments are finished. This is because acupuncture treats the underlying cause of imbalance rather than the symptoms. Not only does acupuncture calm the mind and temporarily relax the muscles, it brings lasting balance to the various systems of the body.
