Acupuncture makes you Happy

Acupuncture makes you happyOne of the best side effects of acupuncture is that it makes you happier. It is better than any drug, because the results are life changing and long lasting. Acupuncture can transform your current health problems.  People seek acupuncture for some of these common ailments: headaches, migraines, allergies, digestion, fatigue, physical pain, insomnia or anxiety.  How much happier would you be in your life if you didn’t have to deal with a health issue? How much more time could you dedicate to other interests in your life? Would you have more energy in your life? These are all important questions.

Acupuncture can create this level of freedom in your life. It provides a platform of well-being so you can live a fuller life. Tension in the body is common, and most people can relate to having some kind of tension at some point in their lives. In general, tension is a stagnation of energy. If you can visualize a water hose, if a part of it is excessively stretch or is blocked, then the water will not be able to flow properly. The same can we said about our meridians and energies that travel along our body. One of the most common areas for people are the shoulders and neck areas: the trapezius muscles along the shoulders, up through the neck to the occiput, around the head to the temples, and behind the eyes.  These areas are governed by gallbladder and liver energy systems. Stress, anger, frustration and not living one’s truth can lead to stagnation.

It is important to first figure out the source of the tension, then find a way to release it. Acupuncture definitely releases the tension, and doing self-inquiry will help to redirect your emotions. If this energy is not released it can lead to chronic anger, headaches, migraines, high blood pressure, shoulder and neck pain, eye pain, and cause a feeling of constant uneasiness. Our modern sedentary lifestyle of sitting in front a computer at a desk compounds the stagnation in the body.

I know for me, when I worked an office job it was the worse. I had a constant headache, and what felt like rocks where in my shoulders. It was all from stress and unhappiness; I didn’t want to be there. This was a time in my life, when I wanted a change, but lacked clarity. To relieve my tension and stress, I got a series of acupuncture sessions.  They relaxed me, allowed the energy to move through my meridians, and dissolved my tension. I become happier with an increase sense of clarity to make the right choices in my life. Through that process I decided to follow my passion for health, and enrolled into Chinese Medical School.

Acupuncture is much more than a way to treat illness, but a way to change your consciousness. It helps direct your energy in a more positive and supportive manner. By focusing your energy to where it needs to be, it allows you to have more space to focus on other important aspects of your life. That is one of the major reasons I decided to become an acupuncturist. I was so stressed, my life had no direction and I was trying to figure it out. The acupuncture sessions shifted me in such a way that the things I needed to do to change became clear. It was very powerful, and it altered the course of my life.

Acupuncture can change your life too!
