Using TCM and Acupuncture to Improve Cognitive Functioning
Traditionally acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used to treat a variety of complaints, such as pain, sleep issues, anxiety, and internal disorders. However, this medicine is also effective in helping patients to improve their cognitive abilities and executive functioning, and help to spark creativity.
What are Executive Function Skills?
Executive function skills are the mental processes that enable us to accomplish our goals; focusing our attention, planning and organizing tasks, remembering instructions or concepts (working memory) and being able to multitask. These skills are not only necessary for success in school or work, but for life in general. Studies show that in adulthood, executive function skills are critical for success in getting and keeping a job, career advancement, maintaining healthy relationships, weight management, experiencing happiness and overall enjoying a better quality of life.
