Acupuncture Treatment for Neuropathy
People are often curious how acupuncture therapy works to support healing within the body. But sometimes the descriptions they receive are abstract or vague, relating to energy flow through meridians on the body and balance of the internal organs. On a more foundational level, acupuncture is effective because it can direct blood flow to any part of the body. Repeated treatments can also train the brain to sustain increased blood flow in specific areas to make the therapeutic effects permanent.
In the case of neuropathy, when there is focalized pain, tingling, burning or numbness in the extremities, this type of therapy can be extremely beneficial. Many people don’t realize the list of conditions for which acupuncture therapy can benefit, but virtually any condition which stands to benefit from increased blood flow is a viable candidate for acupuncture. Nevertheless, any treatment modality can be rendered more effective by implementing the proper lifestyle support. Diet, stress management, gentle exercise, herbal therapy and homeopathic treatment are all valuable components of a comprehensive wellness program.
