Banish Dandruff Forever Using Acupuncture or Acupressure Treatment

without comments

The options for treating dandruff are very diverse these days. Most of us select and pick remedies that suit our lifestyle, pain threshold, and budget.

But oftentimes overlooked is a gentle and safe way of removing the itch and flakes of dandruff. That way is acupuncture. It may seem that acupuncture is an over-the-top treatment for dandruff. But if you want your dandruff to go away forever, something no type of clinical shampoo or herb can ever claim, then I suggest you try acupuncture.

The root reason for dandruff may differ from person to person. But, there is one common underlying cause of this problem and that is the poor circulation of blood and energy to the scalp. Because of this, acupuncture is a fantastic treatment to stimulate the flow of blood flow to this part of the body.

Acupressure works the same way as acupuncture but without the use of needles. Acupressure is an ideal option for those who have an aversion or fear of needles. So, if you have trypanophobia (fear of needles or injections), then I suggest acupressure to gain the same benefits as acupuncture.

In an acupressure procedure, you or your practitioner presses on certain acupoints on the body which can lead to the increase of circulation of blood providing an abundant amount of oxygen conveyed to the surface where it’s most needed.

A lot of individuals do find a scalp massage very enjoyable, so by either searching for a professional or doing the massage on yourself you will be able to gain certain benefits to your scalp acupressure treatment.

So, if you’ve availed of so many things and now are seriously considering trying something different, acupuncture and acupressure are treatments I highly suggest. It is safe, effective and relatively inexpensive.
