An ancient remedy for modern times!
Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating specific points on the body. The technique involves inserting thin, sterile needles into the skin to clear energy channels, with the aim of restoring and maintaining health. The spots of insertion are picked based on a complex network of lines of energy, termed meridians, within the framework of Asian Medicine.
From a Western medicine perspective, scientists believe that acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system, signaling the body to release various substances including endorphins, immune system cells, opioids, neurotransmitters, and neurohormones. These may help control pain, change how the body experiences pain, and promote physical and emotional well-being through the nervous system.
Acupuncture works best for:
- pain relief
- stress relief
- hormonal balance
- digestive concerns
Acupuncture can be combined with conventional treatments such as prescription medication and surgery or it can be used as a stand-alone treatment.
