Hormones affect every aspect of our lives, from our moods to our energy levels and beyond. As such, it’s essential to keep them in balance. Unfortunately, this can be difficult due to stress, the environment, and a variety of other factors. Thankfully, acupuncture is a natural and effective way of helping maintain hormonal balance and improving overall health.

How Acupuncture Helps with Hormonal Balance
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. It is believed that stimulating these points corrects imbalances in the body’s energy system. By doing so, it can help reduce inflammation and facilitate healing in both the mind and body. Studies have also found that acupuncture helps regulate hormones by changing their activity or releasing special mediators into the bloodstream. This makes it an ideal form of treatment for conditions which require hormone regulation like menstrual problems, infertility, menopause symptoms, and diabetes.

What to Expect During an Acupuncture Session
When you come in for an acupuncture session, your acupuncturist will first evaluate your medical history and existing health concerns before proceeding with any treatment. He/she will then check your pulse and examine your tongue to gain additional insight into your condition. Following this assessment, tiny needles will be inserted into various areas depending on your condition. These needles will then be left in place for an extended period of time so that they can work their magic! During this time, you may experience sensations like warmness or tingling which should not cause any discomfort but instead help you relax as the acupuncture does its job.

The Benefits of Acupuncture for Hormonal Balance
There are numerous benefits associated with using acupuncture to promote hormonal balance including: pain relief; improved sleep; increased energy levels; improved digestion; better moods; reduced PMS symptoms; better reproductive health; increased fertility; improved cognitive functioning; healthier skin; stronger immunity; de-stressing effects; reduced inflammation; detoxification effects etc. In addition to helping regulate hormones directly through needle stimulation, acupuncture has also been found to increase serotonin production in the brain – a ‘feel good’ hormone known to have a calming effect on moods and behavior which in turn helps create further harmony within the body’s endocrine (hormonal) system as a whole.
