Acupuncture in Maryland &
Combating Different Illnesses
If you you’re combating various illnesses then you might want to strongly consider acupuncture in Maryland as a way to get relief that you need. Those individuals that have never used this type of treatment before may be a little bit leery in the beginning but you are going to find that there really are some amazing benefits.
Additionally, now that the weather is getting warmer and the day is getting longer, acupuncture in Maryland will help your body wake up from the long, dark days of winter.
Baltimore acupuncture is pretty amazing. Based on the Chinese Philosophy, for the next six months, Yang energy and the sun will influence your life. So, if you feel new energy, it makes absolute sense according to Oriental medicine. It is among the oldest healing practices in the world, dating as far back as four thousand years.
While it is the most often practiced component of traditional Chinese medicine, it is simply that, a component. Along with acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) encompasses various techniques, such as acupressure (Shiatsu), moxibustion, Baltimore massage techniques, herbal medicine, diet, meditation, and exercise, to help you achieve health.
How Can Acupuncture Help?
Disease occurs in the body when there is an imbalance of yin and yang. Imbalance occurs when the flow of qi (pronounced “chi”) is blocked. Qi is the vital life force or energy responsible for regulating a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health, which flow along channels called meridians.
One way to understand meridians is to imagine them as a matrix of channels connecting the body and along those meridians are acupuncture points. It is these points that are stimulated by very thin, (as thin as a few strands of hair) needles, which help facilitate the flow of qi and restore balance in the body.
Allergies, especially in Maryland (around springtime), is something acupuncture in Maryland can help with. When someone is suffering from seasonal allergies it is believed that there is a blockage in the qi in the region of the lungs. Acupuncture helps release this tension. Individuals that are interested in having this treatment for any seasonal allergies are going to want to start this treatment approximately one month before their allergies generally begin.
Not only does it help with your energy level, according to the World Health Organization, Acupuncture is effective in treating the following conditions: Colds, Flu, Bronchitis, Hypoglycemia, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, Ulcers, Colitis, Indigestion, Earaches, Sinus Infections, Allergies, Eczema, Anxiety, Depression – Stress, Insomnia, Impotence, Infertility, PMS, Morning Sickness, Arthritis, Neuralgia, Sciatica, Tennis Elbow, Back Pain, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Migraines, and more…
So let me ask you…How are you feeling today? What is your energy level? Do you feel like you want to take a run but are still stuck on the couch? Rather than take a pill or gulp down a sugary energy drink, both quick fixes, consider a long term natural solution, Acupuncture.
