The Benefits of Acupuncture

Dig deeper than the symptom: Why acupuncture shines in root cause medicine

Are you tired of chasing symptoms without reaching the underlying cause? You’re not alone. Many folks are turning to root-cause medicine, which seeks to understand the WHY behind the illness.

And in this journey, acupuncture takes center stage!

Here’s how acupuncture fits into a root-cause approach:

  • Balances Qi: Traditional Chinese medicine sees health as a harmonious flow of Qi (vital energy) through meridians. Acupuncture helps regulate this flow, addressing imbalances that contribute to illness.
  • Stimulates the nervous system: Acupuncture needles gently stimulate specific points, triggering the release of natural painkillers and anti-inflammatory hormones. This can help address pain, stress, and other issues with a neurological component.
  • Boosts the immune system: Studies show acupuncture can enhance immune function, making you more resilient to illness and aiding in recovery.
  • Empowers you: Acupuncture is a collaborative process where you work with a practitioner to understand your unique needs and address the root cause of your imbalance. This empowers you to take control of your health and well-being.

When conditions do arise however, acupuncture can be very effective in providing relief. Patients who come to Nava for acupuncture have reported benefits in many areas, including the following:
