Acupuncture Benefits

Acupuncture benefits may include pain management, stress relief, and physical and emotional well-being. A traditional Chinese medicine practice, acupuncture is based on the idea that a blockage or disturbance in the flow of the body's life energy, or qi, can cause health issues. Research into the benefits of acupuncture is mixed.

Acupuncturists insert thin needles into specific points throughout the body. This is believed to help balance the body’s energy, causing a reduction or resolution of symptoms.

Acupuncture may be useful for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Arthritis, which describes conditions that involve joint inflammation

  • Long-term pain

  • Depression

  • Insomnia, a condition that involves sleep-related difficulties

  • Migraines, which are intense headaches that often include other symptoms

  • Nausea

  • Sinus congestion, or nasal stuffiness

  • Stress

  • Infertility, which describes difficulty getting pregnant

  • Addiction

  • Skin appearance
