Acupuncture and Pain Relief
Acupuncture works in a different, more natural way from all types of typical medicines. The body is made up of different channels, or meridians, which represent different organs and organ functions. Often there are obstructed movements in the meridians that run throughout the length of the body. These obstructed movements cause swelling up or blockages of energy in some parts of the body while others get deprived from such energy. Acupuncture is not only able to physically break up blockages in the system, but also stimulates the brain to send endorphins to the injured area and allows the brain to recognize that there is an issue. Thus aiding the body to heal itself better.
Whether it be a pain on a body part:
Low Back Pain
Or a more systemic type pain such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, asthma, or nausea from cancer treatments, acupuncture can help boost the immune system and improve the body’s inherent healing power.
