Acupuncture is a great way to prevent upcoming injury or illness that can happen in the future. In everyday life, we encounter unwanted stress, catching a cold, physical injuries etc. Acupuncture had been great in treating stress as well as preventing from having less impact on stress. Symptom wise, people who have acupuncture regularly have less anxiety, better sleep and report themselves happier compared to before acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture also helps with prevention of catching cold often. Cold happens in Chinese Medicine, when the cold or heat evil enters the outside of body to penetrate the inner. So it is important to prevent the cold or heat evil from entering the body. Acupuncturists use points (aka acupuncture pressure points to heal/prevent symptoms) to strengthen outside body, generally known as skin and external parts of our bodies to help this function of "evils" not entering the body. Other issues of unknown injuries in many cases can be from posturic problem. When a person loses body's balance, which leads certain areas of body put more weight than other parts, which can end up lack of circulation of Qi and blood. When circulation lacks, many additional problem can start to occur. Acupuncture can help with these unwanted events from happening by early diagnosis and fix by using acupuncture points.
