How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture has been used as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years to safely, effectively and naturally treat pain and disease. Acupuncture is insertion of sterile, hair thin needles into specific points on the body. Acupuncture points are places where the nerves and blood vessels are densely packed and stimulation of these points regulates the function of the brain, nervous system and internal organs to stop pain, increase circulation and restore normal functioning of the body. Hormones, neurotransmitters, natural pain-relieving substances and natural anti-inflammatory mediators are also released during acupuncture to help stop pain and restore optimal functioning of the body.

Effects of acupuncture include pain relief, increased circulation, improved functions of the organs, nervous system, and immune system. Reduction of muscle spasm, increased range of motion in joints, stress relief, relaxation, and overall a sense of well being

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Acupuncture uses hair thin needles which are usually completely painless when inserted. While a small percentage of patients can experience some discomfort, most will find it very relaxing and many will fall asleep during treatment.
