Unblock Your Chi – How Acupuncture Helps You Feel and Do Better
Is it when you are eating well, exercising, and getting everything on your giant to-do list crossed off? Sometimes achieving this powerful feeling of energy and accomplishment can be hard to come by.
Lethargy, poor eating, and procrastination are extremely common in the transition to fall. The drastic change in schedule, season, social life, extracurricular activities, and the beginning of the holiday season can affect people very negatively. This is also the beginning of fancy fall coffees, enormous family dinners, and all around too much sugar.
How can you keep healthy habits during the fall season?
One solution involves the sterilized, single-use, hair thin needles of Acupuncture.
Acupuncture is an ancient medicine that has been used globally to treat all sorts of ailments worldwide for thousands of years. It is most commonly used to treat pain here in Canada, but also has a number of other uses, including:
- Regulating and boosting the immune system by increasing overall white blood cell count
- Maintaining the digestive system
- Reducing stress
- Increasing endorphins – the natural morphine of our body
- Regulating hormones that can get thrown off with poor diet, poor sleep and increased stress
During Acupuncture sessions, many people feel instantaneously better and more relaxed. I like to think of it as a giant restart button, allowing you to get a fresh start to conquer your day!
From the perspective of Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture points are directly connected to your internal organs, so the appropriate points can improve the function of your entire system. This stimulates your blood and energy or “Qi” (“chi”). Everything in the body is about movement. When energy in your body is stagnant it becomes unhealthy, which is why we feel better after we move around.
The fall, reset your body with Acupuncture, and survive the holiday system healthier, happier, and with a mobile, unblocked Chi!
