The Benefits of Acupuncture in Eugene
We love acupuncture because, like chiropractic care, it goes to the heart of the problem instead of just playing around the edges and covering up symptoms. It is extremely effective for treating back pain, neck pain, fatigue, headaches, anxiety, women’s health concerns, digestive issues, allergies and numerous other health issues. So if you are looking for truly effective, safe, drug-free alternative healing in Eugene, start here.
Insertion of sterile, extremely thin needles into specific points on the skin causes several good things to happen within the body and the mind. Endorphins are released into the bloodstream, which are the body’s natural painkillers. Other biochemical reactions increase circulation, which provides improved nourishment to the specific glands, tissues, muscles, organs and cells in need of healing. And because needling involves no drugs, there are no troublesome side effects.
Because acupuncture is a treatment that aims to heal and balance internally rather than conceal and cover symptoms, it usually requires a series of treatments over a few days or weeks for optimum results. And our patients rave about the deep healing they experience, especially those who may have been a little squeamish or nervous about trying acupuncture for the first time. Sessions usually last about 45 minutes, and our patients also report feeling very relaxed during their appointments.
Speaking of relaxation, many patients are surprised at how painless the needles are. While everyone experiences the sensations differently, most report either no pain or only very brief discomfort. During the resting phase, as the needles do their jobs, patients ordinarily feel calm, relaxed and comfortable, oftentimes even dozing off turning the session. Nevertheless, if you still feel nervous about the needles, many patients get great results with needle-free versions of this treatment also.
