How acupuncture can help you
Acupuncture stimulates the nerves in skin and muscle, and can produce a variety of effects. It increases the body’s release of natural painkillers (endorphin and serotonin) in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received.
But acupuncture does much more than reduce pain. It has a beneficial effect on overall health and patients often notice an improved sense of well-being after treatment.
Modern research shows that acupuncture can affect most of the body’s systems. This includes the nervous system, muscle tone, hormone outputs, circulation, antibody production and allergic responses.
Acupuncture can be very effective for pain relief for a wide range of musculoskeletal pain, for example; back, shoulder, neck and leg pain.
It can also be used to treat:
• Headaches • Migraines • Trapped nerves • Chronic muscle strains • Sports injuries • Allergies • Hormonal imbalances • Depression • PTSD • Anxiety • Various kinds of arthritis and rheumatic pain • Gynaecological symptoms
