Getting to the root of your symptoms
Chinese medicine is energy medicine
Studies have demonstrated these points affect the Central Nervous System as it responds to the stimulus caused by the needle insertion and releases various chemicals and neurotransmitters. Due to such effects, acupuncture may be used to regulate the different systems in the body and greatly improve conditions related to musculoskeletal, nervous, immune, endocrine, circulatory, urogenital and digestive dysfunction. Acupuncture is widely known for its remarkable effects on diminishing both chronic and acute pain.
Research indicates that this may be due to the high amount of endorphins that the acupuncture stimulus releases in the body. Endorphins are the body’s natural opioid-like painkillers. Coupled with some other effects of acupuncture, such as increased circulation and decreased inflammation, acupuncture is a favored choice in the management of pain, as it can diminish the need for pharmaceutical medications, especially opiates, that pose greater health risks and addiction.
Acupuncture works to restore a state of natural balance in the body so that the body can heal itself as it is designed to do.
While relief can be achieved with one treatment, results are cumulative therefore multiple sessions are recommended.
