3 Surprising Acupuncture Benefits


By Doug Burr, MS, L.Ac, Catalyst Acupuncturist

What if you could drastically enhance your recovery from sports injuries, or increase the effectiveness of your workouts? How about lose weight more easily?

Fortunately, these are just a few of the benefits of acupuncture. Regular treatment heals your body’s deficiencies, returning you to an optimal state of health.

Here’s how it works: Imagine your body as an electrical circuit board, and its meridians conduct varying levels of energy throughout the system. An injury blocks the movement of energy, and causes stagnation or deficiency. Acupuncture helps re-open those channels in order for the body to heal itself. Here are 3 specific health issues that acupuncture can help with:

1. Get More From Your Workouts

With regular treatment, you’ll experience a noticeable jump in energy levels as circulation improves, and your body’s able to more effectively utilize nutrients. This allows you to workout more intensely, and for longer. More effective workouts, in turn, improve stamina, immunity, and sleep.

2. Recover Sooner From Injury

If you have acute or chronic injuries, acupuncture can help reduce swelling, and even alleviate pain.

3. Shed Excess Weight

Acupuncture can decrease appetite, and improve the digestive process. Improved metabolism is a key component in overall health.
