Be mindful, be well, try acupuncture. 😊 The benefits from acupuncture are endless....The FDA now recommends to doctors to send patients to an acupuncturist before prescribing addictive painkillers. Acupuncture also reduces anxiety and those horrible “text” headaches as well as being used more and more for facial rejuvenation. #acupunctureworks #acupuncture #mindfulmonday #facialrejuvenation #painmanagement #orientalmedicine

Patients often wonder if they are sleeping or meditating during acupuncture sessions. Research shows that the brainwaves switch from Alpha to Theta waves (relaxing and meditation) during acupuncture treatments creating a sense of calm whether you actually fall asleep or not! The benefits of this serene state stick with you long after your treatment, leaving you feeling rested and renewed for the rest of your day. #acupunctureworks #stillness #rejuvination #wellnesswednesday #orientalmedicine #acupuncture #meditation #chinesemedicine
