For many individuals, acupuncture is a vital part of their path to wellness, allowing our team to assist you in treating illness and pain while also preserving your health and boosting immunity. Acupuncture has been used to alleviate discomfort and sickness for thousands of years, relying on the stimulation of particular neurochemicals that trigger the immune system.
The release of endorphins, such as norepinephrine, acetylcholine, and opioids, has a beneficial impact on the nervous system by reducing pain and inflammation, increasing blood circulation, and promoting relaxation. How do these effects occur? When acupuncture points are accessed with thin, solid, metallic needles inserted by a practitioner, the needles interact with the skin to send electrical impulses through the nervous system to the brain.
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), acupuncture has been proven to be an effective treatment for the following ailments, symptoms, and conditions: nausea caused by surgical anesthesia and cancer chemotherapy, dental pain after surgery, addiction, headaches, menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and asthma. Acupuncture treatments also help with a variety of other issues, including respiratory, digestive, gynecological, neurological, and emotional problems.
