Daily stresses, poor diet, inconsistent exercise, trauma, accidents and age can weaken the immune system leaving you prone to aches and pains. Acupuncture improves circulation and removes blockages to the areas experiencing
discomfort or insufficient functioning.
Very basically, acupuncture is a holistic medicine that considers the body imbalances that lead to dysfunction. We bring balance to the flow of circulation (consisting of energy, blood and body fluids).
Once balance is restored – healing can take place.
Approximately 2,000 different acupuncture points lie along the body’s meridians. Acupuncture stimulates these points with needles, pressure or micro-current (Needleless) to relieve the blockage in the flow of energy, enabling the body to heal.
In the Western view, acupuncture likely works by stimulating the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord)
to release chemicals called neurotransmitters and hormones.
These chemicals dull pain, boost the immune system and regulate various body functions.
