Acupuncture is one component of Traditional Chinese Medicine which aims to balance energy in the body in order to keep it functional and healthy. This therapeutic method is used to:
- Encourage natural healing
- Reduce or relieve pain
- Improve function of affected areas of the body
Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities.
Acupuncture is very effective in treating a variety of painful disorders, both acute and chronic. It is very often used as an effective adjunct to Chiropractic care and massage therapy.
