Acupuncture is a treatment method that involves a thin needle being inserted through the skin. Practitioners mark specific points using needles which correspond to energy channels or meridians. This ancient therapy helps restore the flow or energy to promote balance and healing. Acupuncture is a great therapy to help reduce pain. When an acupuncture needle is inserted endorphins are released in the brain, which helps relieve pain. Acupuncture delivers the best results when it is used on a consistent basis. The more the nervous system is stimulated by acupuncture points the quicker the body can heal.
Acupuncture can also be used to help activate inhibited muscles that can be the root cause of pain. Electro-acupuncture is a technique where a needle is inserted in muscle tissue and a small current is put through it.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest therapies in the world and will continue to help people in the future to come.
