What Is Accupuncture?

Acupuncture involves the insertion if fine needles into the skin and subsequent tissue. This technique has been used in China for 2000+ years and increasingly in western medicine since the 1970s.

There may be a wide range of health/MSK problems that would benefit from the use of Acupuncture, primarily reduce the sensation of pain, and improve the quality and quantity of movement.

If the area in question is overly sensitive to methods such as massage, then acupuncture may be an useful alternative to relieve tension.  This technique can stimulate the body to release the body’s natural pain and stress-relieving chemicals, namely endorphins and oxytocin, and with the additional release of melatonin it may also aid in the sleep quality.

With regards to pain, acupuncture can also stimulate nerve endings to manipulate the pain gate theory and promote access to movement and recovery.
