We’re sure you’ve heard that acupuncture can ease aches and pains, but this holistic practice has many hidden benefits that you may not be aware of. Another bonus? You no longer have to head to a doctor’s office or holistic health center for the treatment — many spas, like Green Tea Massage & Spa in NYC, have trained practitioners who can treat you locally (and, during Spa Week, at a discount!). Below, learn about 3 unconventional uses of acupuncture that may surprise you:
#1 Heartburn is a common complaint of pregnant woman, and studies have shown that acupuncture can effectively diminish heartburn intensity. This is especially beneficial, as the treatments have no harmful side effects on the baby. Consult your doctor first to make sure it’s right for you.
#2 Those who suffer from migraines or tension headaches would probably argue that over-the-counter meds are not very effective in remedying the situation. Acupuncture, on the other hand, has been shown to both prevent and treat the pesky pain that so many suffer from.
#3 Have diet and exercise been unsuccessful in your quest to shed the pounds? If so, a weekly acupuncture session may be a necessary addition to your regimen. Korean researchers determined that acupuncture led to greater weight loss than lifestyle changes.
If you suffer from any of these ailments or are simply curious to see what all of the hype is about, you’re in luck! During Spa Week, you can get acupuncture treatments for only $50. Find your city and book your appointment!
