Acupuncture Manages Pain, Restores Balance & Promotes Healing
Acupuncture can help manage pain and promote healing. If you live with chronic back pain, neck pain and headaches, you may be frustrated with traditional treatments. Standard medical treatments typically rely on medications to cover up your pain, and do little to address the underlying cause of your discomfort.
Acupuncture Treatment Relieves Chronic Pain
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medical therapy that is used widely around the world. It works with the natural energies inherent within the human body to promote the body's natural ability to heal itself. Energy circulates throughout the body along well-defined pathways (meridians), and disease is considered to arise when the energy circulation is disrupted. Acupuncture points along the meridians are stimulated to promote the proper circulation of energy, which influences the health of the entire being.
The World Health Organization recommended the use of acupuncture to treat a variety of commonly encountered clinical diseases. In fact, the National Institute of Health concluded that acupuncture therapy is effective for relief of certain pains, and may be useful as an adjunct treatment for a number of diseases.
Modern medical research has shown that Acupuncture works via the complex central and peripheral neuro-hormonal network. Acupuncture alters the secretion of neurotransmitters and hormones, and regulates blood flow, both centrally and peripherally. It is generally believed that acupuncture works with a person's internal pharmacy to promote the body to heal itself.
