Memory and Concentration

According to the tenets of Taoism and Traditional Chinese Medicine, a disharmony of the mind manifests in poor concentration, loss of memory, confusion, anxiety, forgetfulness, restlessness and even insomnia. All of these can be remedied with acupuncture therapy.

Acupuncture Optimizes Memory and Learning Capacity

Acupuncture can significantly improve learning and memory capacity that has been impaired by hyperglycemia and cerebral ischemia, according to a 2003 study published in the October 2008 issue of Neuroscience Letters. Researchers reported on whether electro-acupuncture could improve learning and memory in rats whose memory and cognitive functions were impaired by the decreased circulatory effects of diabetes resulting in cerebral ischemia. In the study, in all the tests conducted, significant improvements were seen in restored memory and learning capacity.

Modern research has confirmed that a calm, relaxed, disciplined mind performs much better in studying.

Acupuncture improves the functioning of the mind with a holistic approach, increasing focused thinking, attention while reducing nervousness and hyperactivity. It helps to better manage mood and concentration, giving a feeling of well-being while combating anxiety.
