With chronic health issues it is common for people to become so accustomed to their condition, pain, or dysregulated state of being that a “new normal” transpires. While, at times, a quality of acclamation and adjustment does need to take place depending on the circumstance, one’s “normal” should not consist of daily pain and dis-ease in the body and mind.
Whether it is physical pain or mental-emotional unrest, acupuncture, through its profound ability to stimulate the nocireceptors (pain receptors) of the body, as well as accessing the nervous system and communicating directly to our neurotransmitters (i.e. serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphin), this ancient modality has widespread modern application in regulating the body systems, helping us move from an unhealthy chronic “sympathetic state”—fight or flight—into a “parasympathetic state”—one of rest and digest.
By regulating the nervous system, we can support the body to rediscover a place of homeostasis, where it has the natural ability to heal itself.
Acupuncture, along with the adjective support of Chinese herbal formulations, are non-invasive, symbiotic tools to support the body in healing itself from the outside in.
At Ballard Acupuncture Center we believe that healing is beyond just coping. We want to see our patients glow and thrive in every area of their life to rediscover their greatest potential.
