Chronic & acute pain
Acupuncture is a wonderful way to treat a variety of pain related problems such as back and neck pain. Or if headaches and migraines are the cause of your pain then acupuncture may also be a way to get relief from the severe pain.
Research has shown that acupuncture releases adenosine and endorphins, which are the body's natural pain relievers. In addition to the release of these pain relievers it also triggers the release of cytokines and decreases our levels of cortisol. This in turn reduces the amount of inflammation in the body and reduce stress. It also helps switch our bodies out of fight or flight mode and into rest and digest.
