Six ways that acupuncture works for pain:
Acupuncture has been proven to help the body release endorphins, the body’s natural pain killer, which is 100x more potent than morphine.
Acupuncture activates the parasympathetic or calm nervous system. The body can only heal when this nervous system is dominant. As the body gets more practice being in this state with each visit, healing and regeneration occur. Naturally.
Acupuncture affects the brain, including the limbic system, which is the brain area that affects how we perceive and respond to pain bringing pain levels down with each visit.
Acupuncture causes vasodilation - which affects blood flow and improves circulation to damaged tissues in the body. It brings healing and pain relief to the area.
Acupuncture can be used to physically disrupt a painful muscle. Acupuncture can release the hypertonic area and cause vasodilation, encouraging the local tissue to heal.
Acupuncture has no negative side effects. You have nothing to lose! And the biggest risk is that you WILL FEEL BETTER. And not just your painful area(s) – when acupuncture is done correctly, your system will be rebalanced and activated for true health.
