5 reasons why you should have yoga along with acupuncture to benefit most for the mind-body health.

Modern rapid lifestyle puts extreme strains on our mind and body. To keep our mind-body healthy we look back for those ancient healing arts and holistic approaches. Fortunately, we found some. Yoga, a practice dating back over 2000 years to ancient India focuses on the integration of the mind, body, and spirit through the practice of physical movements, meditation and breathing exercises. Its relaxation benefits (meditation and breathing exercises) and stretching and strengthening movements (physical poses) are attracted to many people in modern era. Acupuncture, an ancient healing art has also been practiced for more than 2000 years since it was originated from China. Acupuncture, in which thin needles are inserted into the body was considered a primary medical skill in ancient China and has gained popularity in Western countries in the last few decades.

There are 5 reasons to gain most benefits for our mind and body when we have yoga alongside with acupuncture.

1, Maximize brain and body communications from different pathways. The communication pathway between the brain and body is two-way traffic via motor system and sensory systems of nerves. The brain influences and controls the body via motor system, while the body sends signals to the brain via sensory system. Yoga is a movement therapy in which the benefit is through motor system by movement (physical poses and breathing); acupuncture instead is non-movement therapy in which the needle sensation is sent to the brain via sensory system. Yoga with add on acupuncture provides synergy effects of balance and harmony.

2, Integrate balance of the mind, the face, and the body. When we say the mind body connection, we forget the face. All our emotions, anxieties and stresses can be accumulated on the face which ages the face and affects the brain and mind. Yoga’s movements are mainly involved in the body movements; it does nothing to the face. Facial acupuncture can release all the emotions, anxieties, and stresses to rejuvenate the face and restore harmony in the mind and relax the body. Therefore, having yoga combined with facial acupuncture can benefit the most to integrate the balance of the mind, body, and face.

3, Unblock energy before it can be moved. In the modern practice of yoga, we use movement, breathing and meditation to move energy in a direction that nourishes us. However, if there is a blockage on the energy pathway, the energy cannot get through. So, it is easy to understand that we use acupuncture to sort out any blockages to clear up energy pathway. In this way we can benefit the most from yoga to move the energy around. For example, if there is pain and inflammation on any part of the body where the energy is blocked, this part of the body cannot move because the body automatically protect itself from moving and causing pain. Acupuncture can release pain and inflammation to remove the blockage and make the energy move freely. Then we can do yoga without pain.

4, Acupuncture reduces anxiety and stress to help yoga breathing. Breathing is the core technique of yoga practice which should be rhythmic, deep, and slow to create harmony and balance within the body and mind. If we are anxious and stressed, our breathing patterns tend to be irregular which is tense, shallow, and erratic. Acupuncture releases anxiety and stress effectively to help restore regular breathing patterns and relaxation state to benefit yoga practice.

5, Acupuncture releases tension to help yoga stretching and strengthening. During yoga, our body is going through a full range and variety of motion to get best poses by stretching and strengthening techniques. If some muscles are in tense, stretching and strengthening these muscles can cause injury or simply they are not relaxing and cannot be stretched, let alone strengthening. Acupuncture can release tension from the muscles to make sure all muscles are ready for yoga practice.
