Bald headYou don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone; it’s an old cliché, but it is so true.  Many of us take our hair and constant hair growth for granted, but when it starts to disappear down the drain of the shower or you see your locks on your pillow every morning, you can’t help but fear for what lies ahead.


Whatever about men losing their hair early in life - there is a certain natural masculinity attached to it, and the most he has to worry about is a grilling from his mates – but women feel that their hair is a natural attachment and losing it is like losing a limb.  It takes a skilled hair-dresser to disguise the thinning which is worsening every day.


Well, thankfully, the days when hair loss was a write-off are gone; there are many ways and means of salvaging your mane, so that you can go back living a normal life again.  One in particular is through the use of acupuncture (is there anything acupuncture can’t do?!). 


Body’s Natural Pressure Points


Acupuncture uses the relationships between the body’s natural pressure points and muscles to decipher where there may be a blockage in your energy system.  By simply putting touching a particular pressure point and then adding pressure to a muscle, the doctor can ascertain whether one is working off the other; if, for example, the muscle remains strong, then there isn’t a problem.  But, if the muscle weakens significantly, it can be deduced that there is a problem with this particular relationship and therefore with the balance of your body in general.  The doctor will take a number of readings from various pressure points on your body to get a more accurate reading of the imbalance.


Hair Growth

 

These readings should be able to give feedback regarding your problem and why your body is not acting in a natural manner.  The acupuncturist should be able to redress the issue which started causing the hair loss in the first place and put you on treatment and medication which will get your hair growing again.  This may take three or four sessions, or it may take eight to ten sessions, but the whole procedure has a very high success rate and it comes highly recommended. 


Another procedure which acupuncturists use is to gently stick needles into your scalp to stimulate the blood cells in this area in the hope that the hair follicles will respond and gain a new lease of life.  There isn’t really any evidence to suggest that this may work, nor is there any consistency its results, so any attempt to use this procedure is just speculator.


So if you feel you need your locks back to put a new energy back into your life, then acupuncture may be a viable option for you.  It will do no harm to speak to your doctor about the process anyway if you feel you have tried everything else.
