Top 3 Benefits of Getting Acupuncture in the Summer
Have you tried acupuncture? If not, summer might be the best time to give this ancient Chinese practice a try. By tapping into your qi, you can feel amazing just in time for this highly-active season.
Acupuncturists get very busy in the summer months. That’s because there are 3 big benefits to choosing acupuncture for relief when the warmer weather is around.
1. Injury relief and prevention for activities
Since winter in Ontario is so harsh, the weather in the summer brings everyone outdoors. There are so many activities we can now do. Golf courses and tennis courts are bustling. Lakes are busy with waterskiing and kayaking. Trails are filled with hikers and bikers. Even heading out into your own garden to tend to herbs and vegetables is a special summer activity.
With all these activities, they can lead to strains, sprains, aches, and pains. Inflammation from these injuries can ruin your summer before it even begins. With acupuncture, you can get the relief you need for hip, back, knee, and neck pain. And yes, even driving for hours to get to your favorite summer destination can cause these pains too. See an acupuncturist to keep everything harmonious in your body!
2. Boost immunity ahead of fall
While cold and flu season tends to get worse in the fall, COVID-19 has shown us we can get sick any time. Acupuncture helps boost your immune system. Even if you’ve been vaccinated, it is always a smart idea to prevent illnesses before they can take hold. With acupuncture, you’ll be forming a healthy habit that frees up your energies and lets your immunity thrive.
3. Improve your mood
Interestingly, anxiety tends to rise in the summer. For those that have down time, that lack of structure can make put you in a low mood or bring on anxiety. If you’re already struggling with anxiety, it will only get worse. Stress from work, family, and daily life can get out of control.
Plus, even though summer is supposed to be fun, planning a vacation and getting there can be incredibly stressful. With acupuncture, it helps soothe your nervous system. This will break that fight-or-flight pattern you’re locked in and help you relax as you deserve. Acupuncture also stimulates those feel-good hormones in a natural way so you’ll be feeling happy and ready to enjoy the season.
