Pain Management

Pain of all types can be addressed with acupuncture

Acupuncture naturally addresses both acute and chronic pain due to traumatic injury or repetitive stress, by enhancing circulation, reducing inflammation, and stimulating healing. Studies have shown that when acupuncture is administered, parts of the brain associated with pain management are ‘lit up,’ showing the positive effects of acupuncture on certain pain receptors. It has also been shown in study after study, that acupuncture reduces site-specific inflammation and brings blood flow to painful areas, aiding in faster recovery. Acupuncture excels at treating pain. There is a saying in Chinese Medicine that goes, “Where there is movement, there is no pain.” Acupuncture works powerfully and often quite quickly, to heal the body and illuminate pain.
