Many patients turn to acupuncture as a last resort when allopathic medicine fails them. Others give it shot when their insurance plans are exhausted after the prescribed number of visits. And then there are those who have found the treatment to be highly effective and affordable and turn to acupuncture to fix the root cause of a health problem (rather than just address the symptom which is what most Western medicine does) so that it does not come back.
That being said, we strongly recommend that everyone should try acupuncture at least a few times to know for yourself how it can benefit your body and whether it is worth your time and money.
Here are some reasons that should spike your curiosity and hopefully get you to give this form of alternative therapy a go.
It’s a completely customized kind of healthcare
The major differentiation with acupuncture in comparison to other forms of treatment is that acupuncturists treat patients and not the disease. This means that the treatment differs for each patient even though they may be suffering from the same ailments or discomforts.
Trained therapists provide acupuncture advice in Miami after understanding every detail of your body and your life. This even covers general aspects like the sound of your voice or the quality of your skin.
Their recommendations are based on your lifestyle in the present and in the past. In this form of therapy, the body is considered as a system made up of interdependent parts: muscle, bones, fascia, blood, organs, and meridians make up this network. Their advice and treatments are thus based on the self healing mechanism of the body after identifying your mental as well as physical deficiencies by unblocking them and making adjustments.
It does not hurt
You may be afraid of needles, but trust us acupuncture therapy is nothing to be afraid of. The needles are sterile and hair-thin and their pricks are subtle enough not to get you anxious. Besides, just think of the relief you will get from the chronic pains and aches you suffer every day.
The side effects are lovely
One of the biggest reasons why everyone should try acupuncture is to witness for yourself how fast chronic aches and pains diminish. Mostly patients that undergo treatment for neck and shoulder pain also experience better quality of sleep, reduced stress levels and a much balanced overall frame of mind. Best of all, the therapy is all natural and no drugs are used in the process.
It addresses the root of the problem
One of the principles of acupuncture therapy is to identify and treat the underlying root cause of a problem rather than focusing on the patient’s current condition.
It has excellent results
Acupuncture is an age old form of therapy that can be traced back thousands of years. The fact that it is being used to treat patients even today speaks volumes about its effectiveness.
In Miami, acupressure advice and treatment is highly sought after for treating sore necks, back aches, shoulder pains, sport related muscle injuries, accident injuries and also for recovery from drug, alcohol and smoking addictions.
