When we’re in pain, our discomfort can be the result of an isolated injury, or it can be the result of everyday wear and tear, not to mention overuse. Many of us work demanding schedules to sustain our lifestyles, which often have us sitting at desks or standing on our feet for long periods of time. Even going to work in the morning, we’re sitting in an often hunched and uncomfortable position that puts a ton of pressure on our bodies.
It’s a sad reality that many of our employers don’t equip offices with ergonomic furniture, so it’s up to you to treat aches and pains. Acupuncture is a great way to treat everyday pain in a new, drug-free way.
Traditional Chinese acupuncture consists of tiny needles inserted at targeted “acupoints” on the body, which is believed to release your body’s natural pain-killing endorphins and by inspiring your brain’s serotonin governor, which is a brain chemical associated with mood.
Pay attention to your body and ask yourself where you hurt? Back, legs, neck, joints — acupuncture can address most any area of the body.
