3 Surprising Conditions That Acupuncture Helps Treat
Acupuncture is a popular treatment for anxiety-related disorders and muscle pain, but there are a wide variety of symptoms acupuncture can treat. Our favorites are:
1. Insomnia. If you have trouble sleeping, acupuncture is a fantastic alternative to taking sleeping pills. In addition to reducing stress and encouraging emotional balance, acupuncture can target your chemical sleep receptors to improve the quality and soundness of your sleep.
2. Chemotherapy Relief. Patients undergoing chemotherapy may find relief from nausea and headaches through acupuncture. By rebalancing the chemicals in the body, acupuncture helps restore the body’s natural chemical makeup to reduce the unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy.
3. Weight Loss and Digestive Issues. Acupuncture can calm irritable bowel syndrome, curb hunger and promote more regular digestion. Although the correlation between acupuncture and digestion seems disjointed, there is plenty of clinical evidence to support the use of acupuncture for better digestion. Especially when combined with a full-body wellness plan, this is one of the most popular forms of acupuncture therapy.
Acupuncture can be used as a standalone treatment or to support your pre-existing medical treatment. Whether you’re looking for a natural remedy for stress, can’t shake that baby weight or simply want to try something new to tackle your migraines, acupuncture can help.

If you suffer from chronic headaches, cramps, back pain or poor digestion, it may be time to try acupuncture. Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment that rebalances your internal energy. Although the treatment has Eastern origins, many Western practitioners embrace acupuncture as well, claiming the therapy stimulates nerves and muscle receptors while promoting chemical and hormonal balance.
Holistic treatment options, such as acupuncture, reiki, reflexology and some kundalini yoga practices, are growing in popularity and offer an alternative or complement to taking prescription and over-the-counter medication. These practices often combine energy-balancing treatment with healthy lifestyle choices to promote head-to-toe, feel-good results.
