How does acupuncture work in managing pain?
By inserting filaments into specific acupuncture points, we elicit the following effects: improve circulation to the affected area, block pain signals, alter the perception of pain, reduce inflammation and, finally, release endorphins to take the edge off and get the body to relax.
In addition to acupuncture, Acupuncture Health Services can relieve your pain through other options. Cupping or a reversed massage increases circulation in the pain area and helps ultimately reduce pain. Along with cupping we recommend many herbs that build tissue, fight inflammation and heal tissue locally.
