What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that involves pricking the body with thin needles to stimulate specific sites called “acupuncture points.” While the practice is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is now widely recognized and practiced all over the world.

Contrary to popular belief, acupuncture does not hurt as the needles are gently placed in the skin. Treatment lasts anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes.

What are the typical symptoms of people who choose acupuncture?

People who experience chronic pain such as lower back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, and headaches often seek relief via acupuncture.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

Acupuncture targets specific areas (acupuncture points) throughout the body. Inserting sterile needles into these acupuncture points stimulates nerves, blood flow, and muscles, thereby setting off the body’s natural self-healing process.

In current research, acupuncture stimulation has been proven to help the body inhibit pain signals through the release of endorphins and enkephalins. This provides relief for chronic types of pain, and could further improve healing for various medical conditions.

Acupuncture also helps reduce stress, resulting in decreased heart rate, lower blood pressure, and relaxed muscles.
