There is a saying in Chinese Medicine, “If there is pain there is no free flow; if there is free flow there is no pain”.
Acupuncture for Pain:
Needling acupuncture points helps with pain as it has a direct effect on increasing blood circulation locally and in areas that are distal to (far from) the actual needle insertion due to nerve and vessel pathways. Additionally, the needles stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals into specific areas, including the muscles, spinal cord, and brain, which helps with healing and pain. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body's innate healing abilities, and thus in reducing pain and promoting improved physical and emotional wellbeing.
In addition to helping heal and eliminate pain, acupuncture is recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to be effective in the treatment of:
Muscle, Bone and Nerve Pain and Disease
Joint Pain and Arthritis
Digestive Disorders, such as IBS, colitis, and reflux
Respiratory Disorders, such as asthma, sinus infection, cough
Immune Disorders, such as flu/cold symptoms, allergies, and lowered immunity
Dermatological Disorders, such as eczema, acne, and psoriasis
Gynecological Disorders, such as PMS symptoms, fertility treatments, menstrual pain, and menopausal syndrome
Emotional and Sleep Disorders, including anxiety and depression
Acupuncture for back pain
History of Acupuncture:
At the center of Oriental Medicine is the concept that qi (pronounced “chee”), or life energy, flows through the body within acupuncture meridians. As long as qi is abundant and flowing freely, the body remains in balanced health, also known as homeostasis. When the qi flow is obstructed, it becomes backed up in one area of the body and restricted in another area. Learn more about Acupuncture »
