What Is Acupuncture?
If you have an aversion to needles let me reassure you that you will not feel these at all because they are microfine.
Acumpuncture treatment does some of the same beneficial things to the body as Aromatherapy Essential Oils. The benefits of needle stimulation of acupoints include but are not limited to:
- Stimulating the Circulatory System
- Stimulating the Digestive System
- Has effects on the Heart and can regulate rhythm
- Stimulating the Immune System
- Aids in Regulating Hormones
Can Aromatherapy & Acupuncture be Used Together?
Acupuncturists who understand the benefits of aromatherapy, and the healing properties of pure essential oils, are combining the two remedies for increased health and well-being.
Essential oils are being used not just for Aromatherapy but on the acupuncture needles before insertion. Dipping the acupuncture needles in essential oil greatly increases the health benefit of the acupuncture treatment. Puncturing the acupoints with a needle dipped into an essential oil remedy is called medicated needle acupuncture. It is part of Ayurvedic Aromatherapy treatment.
If your Acupuncturist does not combine the two you can still use combination therapy by using essential oils at home. This will increase the health benefit of both treatments and speed relief and health.
There are acupuncture remedies for Acne, Allergy, Arthritis, Colds, Constipation, Detox, Eczema, Headaches, Insomnia, Pain, PMS and Sciatica to name just a few.
