On Pins and Needles: Acupuncture and a Healthier Boca Raton
The Authority in Boca Raton Acupuncture
For over 2000 years people have turned to the holistic technique of acupuncture. While some see it only as that “thing with the needles,” people all over the world undergo this ancient Chinese practice as tailored to their needs. Combining Homeopathy, Aromatherapy, herbal and energetic medicines, our resident Boca Raton acupuncture expert Katharine Morse can help with several problems. Her acupuncture techniques relieve built-up stress that has a negative effect on your wellness.
Morse graduated from one of the country’s top alternative care institutions in the U.S., Dragon Rises in Gainesville, Florida. There she learned to treat several issues including premature aging, back pain, weight loss, fertility, depression, and insomnia. At the root of her practice, she targets the same problem: stress. Stress causes inflammation, hormone imbalances, and poor digestion. Often people just mask symptoms. Morse targets the cause of peoples’ ailments, so Boca Raton residents live their best life.
Boca Raton Acupuncture for Premature Aging
Factors such as the sun, smoking, and stress will age your skin. Only you can quit tobacco use and apply sunscreen, but acupuncture helps with the stress part. It soothes the nerves and reduces anxiety. It also helps improve digestive issues and stimulates lymphatic drainage. When your body can eliminate toxins more efficiently through the proper channels, they don’t go through your skin. You reduce redness and skin regains a healthy glow. Acupuncture also tightens and tones the muscles beneath the skin. Tighter muscles mean a firmer, more youthful complexion. After a Boca Raton acupuncture treatment for anti-aging, you’ll see a lift in the jawline, cheeks, and brow.
Boca Raton Acupuncture for Back Pain
The constant strain we put on our backs throughout our daily life tends to build up in your spine, resulting in chronic pain. Rather than turning to potentially dangerous painkillers, many Boca Raton residents are looking to acupuncture to relieve back pain safely. Complications and potential negative effects of acupuncture are minor compared to drugs and can lessen pain by at least 50%.
Boca Raton Acupuncture for Weight Loss
When diet and exercise are not enough, acupuncture helps with weight loss. Stress prevents weight loss. When you are stressed, your body releases the hormone cortisol. Cortisol triggers overeating and affects your insulin levels. When your insulin levels are off, your body craves sugary and fatty foods. Combine overeating with junk food and weight loss is impossible. Acupuncture regulates cortisol levels, so you have an easier time losing weight.
In addition to the physical practice, Morse provides nutritional counseling. Nourishing foods heal your body while it lets go of excess weight. Herbs and techniques Morse provide prevent overeating. A holistic approach to weight loss is a healthy alternative to fad diets. Acupuncture addresses the various causes of weight gain for safe results.
Boca Raton Acupuncture for Fertility
Treating infertility with acupuncture came to America’s attention years ago when “Sex and the City” character Charlotte visited a New York expert. Acupuncture can help women get pregnant both naturally and as a supplement to IVF treatments. Imbalances in the body, like an overactive thyroid, can make conception difficult. Acupuncture helps regulate your adrenal system so your body can conceive. Best of all, risks are minimal with acupuncture for fertility. Combined with other methods, many Boca Raton couples with fertility issues become happy parents when they try acupuncture.
Boca Raton Acupuncture for Depression
Many people turn to antidepressants when they are down. However, prescription antidepressants have side-effects such as weight gain, insomnia, and fatigue. Don’t address one symptom only to get three more. Instead, fix the real issue. The root of many Boca Raton residents’ depression is stress. Acupuncture prevents spikes in stress hormones that cause mood disorders. It also stimulates parts of the brain that control emotions. With the right acupuncture technique, Morse can help you feel happier and have less anxiety. If you suffer from mild or seasonal depression, acupuncture may help.
Boca Raton Acupuncture for Insomnia
Insomnia is when you have a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. Anxiety often causes insomnia. Acupuncture relieves anxiety in the same way it does for depression. The needles stimulate parts of the brain to help quiet nervous thoughts so you can fall asleep. Acupuncture also regulates hormones. Stress depletes the hormone you need to sleep, melatonin. Acupuncture increases melatonin production, so you fall asleep easier and stay asleep longer.
