Acupuncture not only helps to repair injured muscles and joints, it also stimulates the release of your body's own anti-inflammatories and pain relieving neurotransmitters while changing the way pain is perceived in the nervous system.

How can Acupuncture Help?
Inhibits pain signals to the brain.
Triggers the body’s natural healing mechanisms, allowing old injuries to heal.
Stimulates the release of neurotransmitters like endorphins that relieve pain and enhance one’s sense of overall well-being.
Manipulates fascia and muscles to release tension and adhesions.
Improves blood flow and metabolism of lactic acid and inflammation.
Increases serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood, which in turn relieves pain.
Acute pain warns you that you have been hurt. It starts suddenly, and when the injury heals, the pain stops. In acute injury, the pain is due to pressure from inflammation in the tissues and nerves at the site of the injury. This inflammation leads to the swelling that is observable and is part of the body’s healing response.
Chronic pain continues after the injury has healed, lasting for weeks, months, even years. In chronic injury, nerve signals that were active during acute injury continue to send messages that the body is in pain. Although chronic pain is not completely understood, it is potentially due to nerves that have become damaged.
New research also suggests that chronic pain can come from a malfunction in the way the brain ‘maps’ sensory information.
Acupuncture can re-educate the nervous system.
