WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin, fine needles into the body in order to decrease pain and promote healing.
How Does It Work?
Recent scientific studies have proven the dramatic and clinical effects of acupuncture in reducing pain. By stimulating the acupuncture needles, a neurological response is produced. This stimulation causes the body to produce higher levels of your body's natural pain killers (endorphins and enkephalon).
The neurological stimulation produced by acupuncture occurs at four levels of your nervous system, from the needle all the way to up to the brain.
Acupuncture also stimulates healing in the area by increasing blood flow and reducing deep scar tissue in the affected structures.
