What is acupuncture, and how does it work?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine-based approach to treating various conditions by triggering specific points on the body with needles. This treatment has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It is based on the premise that a blockage in the flow of the body's life energy, or "qi," can cause health issues, mental and physical. With blocked qi, the body's imbalance will manifest in many ways, such as physical pain, insomnia, digestive problems, and other conditions that cause discomfort. Acupuncture addresses the pattern of disharmony by treating the whole person, balancing the energy, and promoting healing throughout the body.
The body is interconnected, meaning different areas can affect another area of the body. For example, digestive problems can be improved by stimulating acupressure points on the hand. Our acupuncturists will talk with you to understand the various ailments that are causing you trouble. By knowing what areas cause pain in your body, we can gently insert needs into the regions of the body that promote healing. Acupuncture uses tiny needles. You might feel a slight prick from insertion, but these needles are different from getting a shot, and you should not experience any pain.
Why do we offer acupuncture in our mental health practice?
At Trilogy Holistic Mental Health, we do not search for a diagnosis or an "illness." We look within our clients to see what is out of balance in the body, mind, and spirit. By taking this approach, we consider all aspects of holistic health and can treat people on all levels. When the body, mind, and spirit are not in harmony, it can reflect in all areas of your life. Holistic approaches to stress and imbalance can result in growth and empowerment. Acupuncture can reduce stress, anxiety, and worry, which makes it integral to the healing process. It works well combined with traditional talk therapy and provides our clients with relief from any physical discomfort. As it is an effective, holistic approach, we find that combining the two methods provides people with healing in all areas - the body, mind, and spirit.
Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is backed by Chinese medicine that dates back to centuries ago. Over the years, there have been many findings in the use of the practice that help people with pain, stress, or chronic diseases. Not only can acupuncture help with any physical ailments, but it helps to reduce stress and promote calmness. If you are experiencing pain or symptoms that are hindering you from going about your day, acupuncture can alleviate many conditions. The main benefit of acupuncture is healing without the aid of medicine or other pain relievers. Our acupuncturists can target the different regions to remove any blockages. Below are a few of the benefits you can experience from acupuncture sessions.
We all experience stress throughout our daily lives. If stress begins to feel unmanageable, acupuncture can provide you with relief. Whether you have a demanding job, overwhelming family responsibilities, or other factors, stress can manifest in different ways. Acupuncture has been proven to lower stress hormones to reduce anxiety and improve feelings of happiness.
Improves Digestive Issues
One of the most prominent benefits to acupuncture is that it is known to significantly improve GI issues that are causing issues to your overall health. There are many links to digestive health and the health of your entire body. Through acupuncture, you can effectively regulate the digestive system.
Relief from Headaches
Headaches and migraines can put a halt to your day and make it challenging to concentrate on work-related tasks. If you suffer from frequent headaches, acupuncture can offer relief without the need for aspirin.
Alleviates Eye Strain
In this day and age, people are looking at screens more than ever, which can cause eye strain and discomfort. Eye strain is very often connected to neck tension, and gentle needle pressure can help relieve those areas. Acupuncture also treats many eye ailments, including glaucoma, presbyopia, astigmatism, amblyopia (lazy eye), and more.
Eases Neck Pain
Often, we are craning our necks at work or sitting for long hours on our commute, which can cause tension throughout the upper body. Whether you are working long hours or lead an active lifestyle, the neck holds a lot of pressure, which can lead to continued pain. Acupuncture reduces swelling and inflammation in these areas.
We believe that the most effective, natural healing
occurs when we nurture the whole person:
body, mind, and spirit.
Sometimes we just need the right amount of compassion, guidance, and skill to help us access this ability. We're here to help you on your healing journey.
We offer mental health therapy for adolescents, adults, and couples with a unique holistic approach focused on the mind, body, and spirit for the most effective healing.
We pay attention to the body, and believe that it holds great wisdom and the capacity to help you heal.
Along with traditional psychotherapy, we also offer acupuncture, nutrition, Reiki & energy healing, and mind-body focused practices like EMDR to help you achieve optimal health.
We also believe that we are not just our bodies, our thoughts, and our minds. This is why we offer energy healing that nurtures our entire being.
Whether you have religious or spiritual beliefs, or no belief at all, we believe that tapping into something outside of us, even if it is the beauty of nature, it can be a powerful tool in our healing.
