Can Acupuncture and Yoga Ease Stress? — Health Hub from Cleveland Clinic

A good piece by the Cleveland Clinic on acupuncture and yoga, going through some of the more common myths and how either can be used to complement conventional medicine.

Acupuncture

  • Myth 1: Acupuncture is ancient folk medicine; no legitimate healthcare professional would recommend it
  • Myth 2: Acupuncture hurts — after all, we’re talking needles
  • Myth 3: Acupuncture’s effects are psychological. It doesn’t really do anything
  • Myth 4: Acupuncture is only useful in treating pain

Yoga

  • Myth 1 : You have to be really flexible to practice yoga
  • Myth 2: Yoga is only for women
  • Myth 3: Yoga is just stretching
  • Myth 4: Yoga is a religion
