Trypanophobia--the fear of needles--is a health nuisance. It can prevent people from getting the necessary treatment (e.g., vaccinations), or from helping others get treatment (e.g., blood donation). It's difficult to determine how prevalent trypanophobia is, but it can be a deterrent in the promotion of overall health. Acupuncture needles aren't spared from this fear. Anything that's sharp, pointy, and simply needle-like can make trypanophobes turn away. Denver residents with this kind of fear could lose out on the many known benefits of acupuncture from Denver providers.

Cortisol, also called the stress hormone, is a naturally occurring hormone in the body. The body releases it in response to stress, and although it has many benefits, it has plenty of downsides as well, as suggested by the news excerpt above. Fortunately, there is a way to reduce cortisol levels in the body naturally, and it’s called massage therapy. In a series of studies, researchers discovered that massage therapy could lower the body’s cortisol levels by as much as 53 percent. Apart from that, massage also increased serotonin and dopamine levels, which are important in reducing depression.

For centuries, the Chinese have used acupuncture to treat pain and other ailments. They believe that the method encourages the body to promote natural healing, thereby improving its functions. The Chinese explain that channels of energy flow in a regular pattern throughout the body, and that these channels nourish the body’s tissues the way streams of water irrigate farmland. An obstruction to these channels is like a dam that hampers the flow of water. Acupuncture is done to unblock these obstructions.

The genuine feeling of ecstasy one often feels after receiving treatment at a local Denver massage center such as Berkeley Community Acupuncture and Massage Therapy isn’t because of magic. There is a simple premise behind this: upon receiving a massage, the brain releases endorphins, creating the so-called “feel good” hormones dopamine and serotonin. Once these hormones are released, the body feels rejuvenated.

Such a Denver pain management program is a lot more groundbreaking than most people think. While it’s true that it primarily improves comfort, pain management also reduces the risk of complications caused by pain. For example, people who recently underwent surgery need to control their pain to protect themselves from pneumonia and blood clotting after their procedure. Pain management also aids walking and deep breathing exercises.
