Pain Management

Acupuncture, which originated in China more than 3,000 years ago, is one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world, used to both prevent and treat illness.

Many centuries of practice have combined to make acupuncture one of the most elegant and effective systems of healing in use today. The 361 main acupuncture points throughout the body present areas where an individual’s qi can be accessed and adjusted. The stimulation of these points brings about a shift the energy flow through the meridians that connect these points.

Acupuncture affects the transmission of nervous impulses, helping to block pain impulses from reaching the brain. Acupuncture also affects the dilation and constriction of blood vessels, playing a part in the healing and repairing of damaged tissue, as well as the maintenance of healthy body tissue. The release of endorphins and endogenous opiates, natural pain relievers and mood modulators, also plays an important role in the therapeutic effects of acupuncture.

Results from a number of western studies confirm what the Chinese have known for centuries:  that acupuncture helps to ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also helps reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches. Therefore, acupuncture is an excellent option for people with chronic pain.
