Acupuncture is an effective, drug-free way to find pain relief!

Acupuncture is a holistic therapy with its origins from Ancient Chinese Medicine. You may already be wondering what acupuncture could do for you? Read on and find out!

We live in a world of pharmaceutical drug reliance, it seems that the minute we have a pain; from a toothache to a headache, or even a more chronic pain like arthritis, the first thing we do is reach for the painkillers. The problem with this is that we become reliant on the medication and eventually they stop working so effectively, so we turn to stronger pain relief and the cycle goes on. Rather than getting into that cycle, acupuncture has proven to be very effective for pain relief, both acute and chronic.

How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture works by the insertion of very fine sterilized needles into key points of the body often referred to as trigger points. In terms of pain relief, this works by stimulating the sensory nerves, which release endorphins. Endorphins are your body’s very own natural pain relievers and they are stimulated with acupuncture. Often times you may feel complete relief after just one treatment, it is advisable to follow a course of treatments as recommended by your Acupuncturist to feel the true, long lasting benefits.

One of the main theories behind how Acupuncture works is that they stimulate the body’s natural energy or Qi (pronounced chee). This supports the view that illness and pain can be caused by blockages in the body’s energy or meridian system and acupuncture has proven to be a very effective, drug-free way to release inflammation and blockages. Rather than reaching for the pain pills, a few sessions of acupuncture will leave you pain free and full of energy!
