Acupuncture can boost the stimulation of natural painkillers. It has been shown to be very effective in pain management and treatment. It can be associated with the application of pressure, heat, magnets, lasers, and electrical micro currents.
Acupuncture is the insertion of metal filiform needles - fine and sterile - into certain points, balancing the flow of oxygen and blood. Needle insertion is usually painless. These needles are about as thick as a strand of hair. You may feel a tingling, cool or warm sensation, a dull ache on the area of concern or a relaxing experience during treatment.
Acupuncture can increase blood circulation to the problematic area. By stimulating nerve pathways in the body, Acupuncture can reduce the inflammation, pain and restore health.
