Why You Should Try Acupuncture


So you are curious about acupuncture. Has someone suggested it to you for an injury, headaches or fertility support? Acupuncture can be a great support for these things. The truth is you will likely experience other benefits you hadn’t thought of. Learn about these three unexpected benefits of seeing a Registered Acupuncturist. Improved sleep, decreased tension, and stress relief are three common benefits of acupuncture.

1. Improved Sleep

Good quality sleep is so integral to health and wellbeing. Why is it a challenge for so many people? Statistics Canada suggests that up to 48% of Canadians aged 6-79 may experience symptoms of insomnia. Do you have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early? Acupuncture can help.

So how does it work? Acupuncture can improve sleep by:

  • helping the brain increase nocturnal melatonin secretion
  • promoting relaxation by regulating the nervous system

2. Decreased Tension

Are you too tired to exercise after sitting at a desk all day? Not to mention that many people are now working from home with poor ergonomic set ups. Whatever the cause general tension, back pain, and neck pain is very common among adults.

Acupuncture can help reduce muscle tension by:

  • stimulating the body to release natural pain killers
  • improving circulation of Qi (energy) and blood in the body

3. Stress Relief

You are likely to experience stress in your day-to-day life. Your stress may stem from work, relationships, or the pandemic. And there are likely a combination of contributing factors. Whatever the cause, acupuncture offers a simple solution.
Having a regular acu-nap can help you rest and rejuvenate to better manage stress. Remember the natural pain killers I mentioned earlier? These can also boost your mood and relieve stress.
In pandemic times, self-care is more important than ever. Whatever your chief concern, you stand to gain a lot from acupuncture. When it comes to acupuncture: improved sleep, decreased tension, and stress relief are a package deal.
