The Benefits of Getting Professional Acupuncture in Palm Harbor, FL

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and has many positive effects on the body. It has been known to help relieve pain and other symptoms affecting the body. Getting acupuncture in Palm Harbor or in other areas can help greatly reduce or relieve pain in various parts of the body.


One of the major benefits of acupuncture is that it is known to work on people who do not respond, or have stopped responding to pain medication. In addition, people who prefer that their bodies naturally heal themselves without the use of drugs believe that acupuncture is a great alternative.

In a recent new report published in the online version of the British Medical Journal(1) has found that acupuncture is a useful, cost-effective treatment for chronic headaches, particularly migraines.:

“The report found that over a 12-month period, headache patients who received regular acupuncture sessions reported fewer headaches, had a higher quality of life, missed fewer days from work, used less medication, and made fewer visits to a general practitioner than patients given standard treatment for headaches.

Patients given acupuncture had an average of 1.8 less days with headaches over the first four weeks of the study compared to the control group. When projected over 52 weeks, the authors estimated that acupuncture would result in an average 22 fewer days of headaches per year.”

The article is supportive of the idea that acupuncture is an effective means of natural healing. The patients that were involved in the study felt that symptoms they experienced had reduced in severity and frequency. The authors recommended that their findings should be taken into account by policymakers when assessing the most cost-effective ways of treating patients. They also called for an expansion of acupuncture services for the treatment of chronic headaches in the National Health Service, which provides health care to millions of Britons each year.

Acupuncture, which is a component of traditional Chinese Medicine, has been known to be an effective alternative treatment for other symptoms as well. To experience the positive effects of this approach, an acupuncturist in Palm Harbor, such as Ease West Healing Solutions, is the best practice to approach. Acupuncturists will be able to offer a calming session as well as a variety of natural healing treatments.
