Acupuncture, the Perfect Gift for Dad

Father's Day is just around the corner. Do you know what you're getting the dad in your life?

Dads are the best! They're always there to lend a helping hand, teach us how to fix things, and offer advice or words of wisdom. They've always been the big strong men in our lives who love us and would do anything for us. When a tie or golf balls don't feel quite right, give him the gift of acupuncture!

Why acupuncture? Acupuncture is good for so many things.

Stress and anxiety is something that every father has had to manage at some point in his life. Being a dad can be stressful. When someone is stressed, their body is in fight or flight mode. Acupuncture can help stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to bring their body out of fight or flight and help them relax. Acupuncture releases norepinephrine, endorphins, and dopamine which improves their state of mind and is calming. Acupuncture can help calm and ground the body so that they are better prepared and well equipped to handle the stress that life throws at them.

Acupuncture is also great for aches and pains. Whether it's a sore back from carrying the kiddos around all afternoon or a bad knee, acupuncture can help get dad back on track so he can keep up with the little ones. Acupuncture helps increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and releases natural pain-relieving hormones. If the dad in your life is dealing with either chronic or acute pain, acupuncture will help his body heal itself instead of just masking his symptoms with a pain pill.

Now that it's springtime and dad's getting outside with the kids more, his allergies may be acting up. Allergies are caused by the immune system overreacting to foreign particles. Acupuncture can help calm the body's overreaction to the allergen so that the symptoms decrease and the inflammation subsides. Dad's don't have time to deal with the drowsiness that comes along with your typical antihistamine.

The benefits of acupuncture go on and on. If you have questions about acupuncture and if it's right for the dad in your life, please reach out! If you would like to give your dad a treatment, book online, or purchase a gift card.
