Through Acupuncture, we tap into the body’s innate ability to heal by inserting small needles that regulate and restore balance. A balanced body is a healthy body.
The short answer is yes. Acupuncture can effectively remedy a whole host of acute and chronic conditions, as well as strengthen your body’s ability to heal. Every human body could use a leg up — whether you’re feeling career stress, managing the effects of aging, or recovery from pain or injury, acupuncture can keep you at your best and living the life you want.
Inflammation is how the body fights problems, but more and more we are learning that lingering inflammation causes some of our most stubborn ailments – chronic disease, joint pain, depression and fatigue, among others. In recent years, medical researchers have validated that acupuncture actually down regulates proinflammatory biochemicals.
Your limbs and organs need all the nutrients and oxygen rich blood your heart can pump. Yet the vessels that distribute your blood don’t always work at maximum efficiency. Acupuncture regulates vascular dilation and constriction making sure your body gets the blood it needs.
Acupuncture activates the parasympathetic nervous system switching the body into an environment where it can heal and rest. Acupuncture also triggers the brain to release endorphins. Peace- and pleasure-inducing endorphins make us feel good — better than any pill you can buy in a store.
Pain is just a message to our brains, telling us something is wrong in our body — a nagging message that often lingers longer than it needs to. By releasing endorphins and other endogenous analgesics, acupuncture reduces our brain’s perception of pain and promotes relaxation.
When performed by a registered or licensed acupuncturist it’s very low risk and has been used safely for centuries. Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic and The World Health Organization all endorse acupuncture as a safe and effective treatment of many conditions.
