Pain Relief

How will it feel with less pain your life?

Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe that one’s life force, or qi (ch’i), flows through energy points, and acupuncture can help stimulate them if they have fallen into dormancy. According to Chinese theory, twelve major meridians exist within the body, connecting major organs and helping to keep the body balanced. If one of these meridian points falls out of alignment, it can open the doors for disease and pain to enter the body. So it is with this ancient theory and now modern scientific exploration that we understand the power of using acupuncture for pain relief throughout the body. Acupuncture has been used to assist with the relief of pain in specific sites such as sports or life strains and injuries, PMS or period pain, and locations in the body like back, neck and head; or within disease states such as Arthritis, (osteo rheumatoid and psoriatic) fibromyalgia, and migraine.

Natural pain hormones like endorphins, prostaglandins and oxytocin are known to be released and used by the body during an acupuncture session.
