Benefits of Acupuncture

The Benefits of Acupuncture with Las Vegas Acupuncture Professional Dr. Peter Lok

For centuries the time-honored the practice of acupuncture has been used to treat back pain, headaches, injuries and more. But acupuncture can provide much more than just pain relief. It can also help with anxiety, digestive problems, insomnia, menstrual conditions, infertility, as well as a vast array of other impediments to health and well-being. It’s become a widely accepted practice in North America and the west in general in the last 40 years, and was endorsed by the renowned Canadian physician, the Father of Modern Medicine, Dr. William Osler in the early 1900s.

The Many Uses of Acupuncture

The therapeutic effects of acupuncture can result in relaxation, pain diminution, the reduction of muscle fatigue, and improved recovery time, enhanced concentration, more restful sleep, improved IBS symptoms like constipation and bloating, as well as shortened durations for cold and flu. Acupuncture has been known to decrease feelings of depression and anxiety in women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and it can also help with an overactive bladder. Numerous studies have shown that acupuncture can help delivering mothers with breech presentation births and can also help to induce labor.

This ancient treatment has been used in tandem with many modern medical treatments. It’s been used in conjunction with in-vitro fertilization, postoperative nausea treatments and has also been proven effective as a means to lessen feelings of anxiety before surgical interventions. The US military has also incorporated a specialized version of acupuncture known as Battlefield Acupuncture to help soldiers who are suffering pain from their wounds.

This time-honored treatment has also found use in anti-aging treatments, and patients have claimed they enjoy effects such as reduced wrinkling of the skin, improved complexion, and firmer skin. Acupuncture has been used successfully not only to treat particular diseases and symptoms but also for preventative purposes and the promotion of well-being. In Japan, it is believed to be best to treat patients in their pre-disease conditions or as they say ‘mibyo.’
