Acupuncture is well known as an extremely effective way to treat pain. What exactly makes it so successful in reducing pain? Studies have shown Acupuncture regulates the immune system. Regulating the immune system reduces inflammation, which is a major factor in both acute and chronic pain.
This anti-inflammatory effect is part of why Acupuncture is so effective in managing painful Autoimmune diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis or Crohn’s Disease, which have large inflammatory components. At Inner Alchemy Acupuncture, we regularly employ Acupuncture’s remarkable power to promote and harmonize immune system function.
This same regulating effect of Acupuncture can dramatically enhance immunity and prevent sickness. It is commonly used in hospitals to help patients who are undergoing anti-cancer therapies, where immune suppression and pain are major concerns.
With the global spread of COVID-19 we are living in extraordinarily stressful times. Prolonged stress can seriously impair or deteriorate a person’s immune system, creating the potential for infection or development of other diseases.
Getting regular Acupuncture treatments is a great way to make sure you are proactive and able to stay healthy. It can also help you recover after an illness or surgical procedure by supporting your immune system.
