The start of a new year is a great time to reflect on achievements and look forward to the future. This period of reflection and renewed resolve may be challenging but it can also be productive and rewarding. All and One Acupuncture can help you achieve your health goals. Acupuncture helps prevent illness, relieve stress, minimize aches and pains, and improve energy. Maintaining a calm and clear mind helps to strengthen your resolve as you take the next step in achieving your goals.
Stress reduction is always on the top ten list for New Year’s resolutions and for a good reason; it is often the cause of illness and deterioration of health. Numerous studies have demonstrated the substantial benefits of acupuncture in treating stress, anxiety and high blood pressure. In addition to acupuncture, herbal medicine and dietary therapy offer a whole range of tools that can be integrated into your life to keep stress in check.
Improved Quality of Life
If pain is keeping you from living life to the fullest, acupuncture can be helpful for all types of pain, regardless of the cause or where it is located. Increasingly, people are looking for more natural approaches to help relieve painful conditions instead of relying on pain medication. In addition to reducing pain, acupuncture also hastens the healing process by increasing circulation and attracting white blood cells to an injured area.
Get in Shape
Renewed enthusiasm to exercise in order to enhance fitness levels, train for a competition, or lose weight can come at a painful price for those who try to do too much too quickly. Recent studies show that acupuncture effectively treats sports injuries such as strains, sprains, musculoskeletal pain, swollen muscles and shin splints.
Losing weight is the most common New Year’s resolution. Acupuncture can help you reach your goal weight and maintain it by promoting better digestion, smoothing emotions, reducing appetite, improving metabolism, and eliminating food cravings–all of which can help energize the body, maximize absorption of nutrients, regulate elimination, control overeating, and reduce anxiety.
