Acupuncture as well as massage can aid in maintaining and optimizing health, whether you are seeking care for an acute or chronic condition or looking for ways to reach health goals. Acupuncture for depression has also been shown to be effective because it promotes relaxation and stress reduction.
In addition, acupuncture can treat:
- Sleep disorders
- Back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Digestive disorders
- Weight gain
- Circulatory problems
Acupuncture can be used as a primary or complementary therapy in the treatment of both acute and chronic disease. It can also be used preventatively to maintain health and wellness.
Also effective, massage can treat stress, inflammation, swelling, poor circulation, neck and back pain, muscular strains, fatigue, sprains, fibromyalgia, headaches and migraine, and arthritis. Therapeutic massage can be incorporated into specialized treatment for chiropractic care, sports medicine, physical therapy, and orthopedics.
Benefits of acupuncture and massage include:
- Acupuncture strengthens constitution and the immune system.
- Acupuncture can enhance health for those who have a general sense of malaise without experiencing an adverse health condition.
- Massage can increase flexibility, energy, and range of motion.
- Generalized pain syndromes can be alleviated with massage.
