Improve your performance at work, naturally.
As a practitioner of naturopathic medicine, I often find myself helping my patients improve their day-to-day; particularly, professionals in various fields who want to improve their productivity. Acupuncture is a natural modality with many benefits to help you conquer your specific performance inhibitor. If you have one or more of the following symptoms during each workday, acupuncture could be right for you.
1. Stress Management
Deadlines, coworkers, management… it can all be a stress inducing environment. One of the top benefits of seeking acupuncture treatment is stress relief. Acupuncture stimulates the release of oxytocin, the hormone that manages your parasympathetic nervous system. Additionally, many bodily hindrances such as high-blood pressure and insomnia are positively impacted by acupuncture. Acupuncture is an excellent strategy for combating excessive amounts of stress.
2. Headache & Migraine Relief
How exactly does acupuncture relieve headaches, migraines and tension? The insertion of the needles stimulates nerves to release hormones (such as endorphines) which is linked to pain relief. Acupuncture has shown to reduce the frequency and potency of chronic head pain to keep you working at your desk all day long.
3. Immune & Dietary Management
It is the middle of the workday and you’re on track to completing your schedule. BOOM. Out of nowhere you are hit with a random craving. Naturally, you indulge. You are left with a shell of the productivity you once had and bloating that will not go away. When it comes to dealing with those midday snack cravings, acupuncture is a viable treatment option. Acupuncture can help increase your metabolism and minimize appetite. Let’s talk about dealing with those pesky sick days. Acupuncture can help regulate the body’s immune system and create faster response time in dealing with various infections.
4. Joint & Muscle Pain Relief
If you suffer from joint pain, back pain, muscle pain or neck strain at work, acupuncture may be just what you need. Similar to how the natural treatment deals with headaches and migraines, the release of endorphins will help relieve tension pain experienced. This will keep you focused on your work and not your body itself.
5. Reduce Eye Strain
Acupuncture has been used to treat eye ailments such as: glaucoma, short/long sight, astygmatism, cataract, color-blindness, night blindness, lazy eye (amblyopia) and much more. Acupuncture could prove very beneficial if you are tired of your eyes being in discomfort from the screens you look at on a daily basis at work.
