There are a lot of myths about acupuncture, a medical model that has been around for over 4000 years and used successfully to improve the health and well being of people around world.
As busy professionals taking care of ourselves is vitally important. Acupuncture can be a great way to do just that.
Don’t let the myths put you off, here is the third in a series of acupuncture myths that I hope will lead you down the path to discovering how acupuncture can ease many of your daily concerns.
Myth 3: Most people who use, or practice, acupuncture are into ‘New Age’ healing
Fact: Most people who use acupuncture choose to do so either as part of the mainstream health treatment or as an alternative treatment after having tried mainstream medicine.
More often than not they come to acupuncture as a ‘last resort’ or after having done some research on how it can help with health and wellbeing.
In some cases acupuncture is successful at helping people cope with side effects of conventional treatment e.g. side effects of chemotherapy or as an adjunct to conventional treatment e.g. IVF and fertility treatment.
There is plenty of research that supports the use of acupuncture in treating regular health problems, details of which can be found on www.acupuncture.org.uk or by visiting my twitter feed @acuBalquees.
I’m a pretty practical businesswoman, I came to acupuncture via debilitating migraines. I am yet to come across anyone running a business who doesn’t have some kind of pain concern, mild or otherwise.
Acupuncture is often not the first treatment sought out, but can be the last.
