It's hard to imagine how anyone would be able to receive all the benefits of acupuncture without leaving their home, but yet, here we are. First we should discuss the benefits & how you could benefit from acupuncture. This natural method of healing has been used to treat everything from depression to allergies to morning sickness.
Here's just some of the reasons why you may want to consider adding it to your routine:
In this 2017 randomized clinical study by JAMA Internal Medicine, scientists looked at the long term effects of acupuncture on 249 patients. The study lasted 24 weeks, and by the end of the study, scientists found that acupuncture significantly reduced the strength and frequency of migraines.
The main use of acupuncture is to aid chronic pain, specifically the three most common; back/neck pain, osteoarthritis, and shoulder pain). Essentially, acupuncture works by creating a minuscule injury (rarely felt by the patient, if at all) at the insertion site. This stimulates the immune system by promoting circulation in the area, encouraging the body to begin self healing.
However, one can still receive these benefits without the need for needles. An electrical stimulation unit that has this function allows you to heal your body from home. The Vpod by Massage Therapy Concepts has 24 different functions, and one of them is acupuncture, using EMS technology. This wireless unit connects via Bluetooth to the VPod app (now available in the Apple and Google App Stores) and allows you to customize your recovery session to fit your immediate needs.
Anxiety & Depression
In a study conducted by The National Center for Biotechnology Information, scientists looked at the effect of acupuncture on women with diagnosed anxiety and depression (since it is almost twice as much as men, according to the study). While there was a lack of research specifically on depression, since that can be difficult to measure, anxiety was improving. In a separate study, participants received ten 30-minute sessions of acupuncture over the course of 12 weeks. They experienced a "significant reduction in their anxiety, even 10 weeks after treatment."
