Back to School Message to Our Teachers and Students
Keep your mind active and challenged! 🧠
#Brain function decreases with age. Studies show that cognitive exercise can improve blood flow to the brain. Spend at least 15 minutes each day on a mental exercise such as a crossword puzzle, journaling or learning a new language in order to slow memory loss.
However you choose to exercise your brain, #acupuncture can help! Numerous studies suggest that acupuncture can help improve memory, mental clarity, concentration and cognitive function. 🙌
One published study looked at how acupuncture affects the performance of medical students taking an exam. Another study with cerebral functional imaging before and after acupuncture treatments showed a significant increase in the cerebral glucose metabolism of the brain which is associated with improved cognitive function. Other studies have looked at how acupuncture improves memory and reduces stress. All results, thus far, have been positive.
