Do you ever feel like your life is just out of balance? Like no matter how hard you try to keep up with the daily grind, you keep feeling two steps behind, wading through each day against a strong, fast moving current?
Everything in our culture has become so fast-paced. And thanks to our reliance on the smartphone, we’ve made ourselves even busier because we’re constantly plugged in. Even when you’re off the clock, you’re never really off the clock. Technology has made you, has made all of us, completely available to everyone, everywhere, at nearly every moment.
Now, this isn’t necessarily a terrible thing. Technology isn’t a villain in our culture. But there’s something to be said about what our incredibly busy lives is doing to our health.
You’re an adult. You have obligations and responsibilities that keep your wheels in constant motion. But eventually, if you aren’t able to maintain some sort of balance in your life amongst work, home, and family, it will take its toll on your total health and wellness.
Why is that? And more importantly, what can you do about it?
That’s what we’re talking about today. At the LANAP & Implant Center, we want to help you have a healthy, attractive smile. But our focus isn’t just on your oral health.

It’s all about acupuncture. This practice goes back 3,000 years as one of the best ways to help unleash your body’s own healing potential. But what does acupuncture have to do with your oral health?
When The Flow Of Energy Is Disrupted
Your body is an incredible machine. Yet, with all of its unbelievable healing potential, why do you find yourself struggling with problems like weight gain, headaches and migraines, depression, anxiety, frequent colds, and chronic pain? What is keeping your body from optimal function, health, and healing?
One of the explanations could be how energy flows through your body. Acupuncture stems from an ancient Chinese philosophy about how opposing forces, that’s you and the rest of the universe, work together in a balanced, harmonious way.
Think about what we described at the beginning of today’s blog. So many of us face that daily grind, fighting traffic, dealing with difficult people at work, racing the kids to and from their practices and recitals, getting dinner on the table, helping with homework, and all the rest of it. While there’s joy and fulfillment there, certainly, you can also find yourself in this survival mode of tension during the day and then running on fumes by the evening.
What does all of that tension do? Where does it go? What happens to the flow of energy in our bodies?
The stress of everyday life can disrupt your body’s flow of energy that keeps everything in balance. That blocked energy inhibits your body’s ability to function properly and to heal itself.
That’s what acupuncture does. Acupuncture is the practice of stimulating those points, commonly called acupoints, in your body to help free up the energy so it can move through your body to improve function and unleash its healing properties.
