Are You a Candidate?
Are you a candidate for acupuncture?
Take the next two or three minutes to give yourself an honest evaluation. You may consider yourself perfectly “healthy” at this moment, but how do you REALLY feel?
- On a scale of 1-10, how high is your energy level? And if it is high right now, do you expect it to stay this high throughout the whole day, with no sudden crashes?
- How is your sleep? Is it consistently deep and restful? Do you always feel refreshed upon waking?
- Do you have any issues with digestion? Are your bowel movements regular and well-formed? Do you experience gas, bloating, or heartburn after meals?
- How are your moods? Are you fairly even-keeled and happy? Do you feel that your life is stress-free?
- Do you ever get headaches, shoulder tension, a stiff neck, a tight jaw?
- If you are a female, do you experience cramping, bloating, or mood swings with your periods?
All of these issues are signs of imbalance, and they can all be successfully treated through acupuncture.
