Suffering from chronic or acute pain? We can help relieve your pain symptoms with Acupuncture.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice rooted in the belief of “Chi,” sometimes referred to as “Qi.” Chi is an energy force that flows throughout the body. Any disruption to this flow (whether it be blocked or unbalanced) can cause a body to respond with pain or illness. Traditional acupuncturists aimed to reinvigorate Chi flow by inserting hair-thin needles into specific points in the body. If the energy force within the body flowed harmoniously, then pain and illness would be eliminated.
Today, researchers suggest that acupuncture initiates the release of endorphins (“stress-fighting” chemicals) into the blood stream. Essentially, these endorphins act as the body’s natural pain relievers and decrease the patient’s perception of pain.
Does it Work?
Acupuncture is a natural and holistic approach to treating chronic and acute pain. For those with osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, or injury pain, Acupuncture may be the solution for you. We have seen many patients find relief with Acupuncture – some note relief almost immediately, whereas others find relief gradually. Acupuncture has also been noted to reduce patients’ reliance on pain medication, for a more natural approach to pain relief.
