Acupuncture & Addiction : Holistic Healing During Recovery

acupuncture addiction treatment
Acupuncture has been used for the treatment of illnesses and pain for hundreds of years. It was first encountered by the Western world in Portugal, and its popularity has been steadily on the rise since then. Acupuncture is a holistic way of treating and managing pain, and yes—even drug addiction and alcoholism.

The Acupuncture Process

There is a preconceived notion that acupuncture is painful. The important thing to remember—as with any treatment—is to relax and approach the procedure with an open mind. The needles that are placed gently and slightly into the skin are only the width of a hair. When inserted, there can be a tingling sensation, but once the session is complete there is a general sense of calm and tension release.

Acupuncture has been successfully used to treat many different ailments like muscle pain, insomnia, depression, and food allergies. While this Chinese modality has been around for hundreds of years, its use for alcoholism and addiction is relatively new. Studies have shown that acupuncture helps to release our body’s natural painkillers, called endorphins. Endorphins positively affect one’s physiological and emotional wellbeing, helping people overcome addictive behaviors.

Advantages of Acupuncture for Addiction

While the advantages of acupuncture for addiction vary from person to person, many cutting edge facilities like ours have seen benefits such as:

·      Managing withdrawal symptoms during the detox process
·      Ridding the body of built up toxins from years of abuse
·      Achieving an overall sense of contentedness and wellbeing
·      Releasing natural chemicals that encourage relaxation
