What is acupuncture?

 

Acupuncture is safe and effective alternative to medication and, in some cases, surgery. It stimulates the release of endorphins – the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones – through the insertion of needles into specific anatomical points (acupuncture points) to encourage natural healing. Therapeutic effects include:

  • Pain relief

  • Increased energy

  • Improved mood

  • Improved body function

It can be used for short term situations like sports injuries, cold/flu, pain or for more chronic conditions like insomnia arthritis, and menopause.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture is a gentle treatment. Most patients find that the treatments are relaxing and cause minimal discomfort. It is usually a comfortable treatment. Acupuncture needles are very fine, metallic, and as thin as a hair, making them quite painless upon insertion. Everyone experiences acupuncture differently, but most feel no pain or very minimal pain as the needles are inserted.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture can be used to treat people of all ages from children to seniors. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for pain. It is the stimulation, by insertion of needles, of specific points on the body which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones. Acupuncture affects the functioning of the hormonal system, promotes a decrease in inflammation, increased circulation and relief from pain.
