5 Reasons Why Every Mom Could use Acupuncture
Being a mom is one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet. It’s also one of the most stressful and exhausting ones. Few moms out there ever put themselves first and what a shame! You really should, for proper self-care will help you feel less flustered and allow those daily trials and tribulations to roll off your back.
A great way to align your physical and mental health is to choose acupuncture. And best of all, if going to yet another appointment makes your mom-brain want to shut down, we can send an acupuncturist to your home when it’s convenient for you.
Here’s why moms need acupuncture to help them feel their best inside and out!
1. It’s great for morning sickness
Maybe it’s not your first pregnancy, but when you’re busy with other kids in the house and trying to battle morning sickness, it can wear you down even further. With acupuncture, you can get natural and safe relief for that queasiness.
2. It can relieve stress
Between remembering those parent-teacher conferences, shuttling kids to activities, work, and other responsibilities, the stress you feel as a mom can really pile up. Stress leads to increased cortisol which can also make it harder to lose weight. Instead of taking pills that make you feel loopy, acupuncture is a wonderful way to embrace calmness and serenity without any pain.
3. Relieve arthritis pain
Because moms forgo their own needs to help their children, they often miss the subtle signs of arthritis creeping up on them. Acupuncture along with Chinese medicine can help you manage overworked, painful joints, allowing you to feel flexible and mobile enough to keep up with your kids every day.
4. No more migraines
Every mom thinks her children are beautiful. Until those same children are screaming down the hall or banging pots and pans. Add in a migraine and it becomes unbearable. With acupuncture, your migraines could soon be a thing of the past.
5. You’ll sleep better
Isn’t it funny how tired and drained you feel all day until you finally lie down for sleep? You’re not alone if you get to bed and insomnia keeps you up all night. And on those nights that you DO actually fall asleep fast, one of your kids is sure to come wake you up. It’s mom life, but with an acupuncturist in your corner to stimulate the right pressure points, it will balance your hormones and calm your nervous system allowing you to sleep beautifully.
