I am excited to share some tips for how acupuncture can inspire us to embrace living a more
healthy, relaxed, and fulfilled life. We can practice feeling better through focused intention on
doing and being what helps us to feel and be our best selves.
Here are 5 specific ways that acupuncture can change your life:
1. Relieve stress
By calming your nervous system down, acupuncture will help you feel less affected by and
better equipped to manage the stressful everyday aspects of life. Feeling calm, centered, and
relaxed is a gift we give to ourselves. It allows us to feel more present, grateful, and available to
embrace our lives, as well as those around us.
2. Give you more energy
It is common to find yourself in a deeply relaxed, mellow state that lasts well beyond the
acupuncture session. You feel as if your whole system just go a tune-up. Now your body can do
more of what it naturally knows how to do: Working as a whole system to function more
effectively. This often allows for an increase in your overall energy level, a feeling of openness,
hopefulness, and inspiration.
3. Clear your head
Along with a burst of physical energy that emerges from receiving acupuncture, many notice
improved mental clarity. You get out of your own way and can see clearly what you are ready to
take care of, and what you are willing to let go of. A clear mental perspective allows for more
easily determining decisive action and creating a deeper sense of confidence in yourself.
4. Help you embrace change
Acupuncture teaches us to reflect on the small changes happening within and around us all of
the time. Unwillingness to accept change is a huge source of stress and anxiety for many
people. Through reframing change as a marker of progress rather than something to be scared
of, we learn the art of letting go and going with it, rather than against it. So, let’s let go!
5. Believe in yourself
We are complete and whole within ourselves. We have everything we need within us to be well.
Acupuncture prompts the body to do what it already knows how to do. It reminds you that you
have the power to heal yourself. That is so great, isn’t it? Through using therapy like
acupuncture, which embraces rather than ignores our innate healing capacity, you are making a
statement that you believe in yourself.
