Types of Conditions that Acupuncture is Beneficial for:
Acupuncture can be a very effective solution when treating many different problems. It works by increasing the circulation to the area and decreasing inflammation. Secondly, acupuncture stimulates regrowth of the cells and tissues in an injured area. And also, it helps to reduce pain by activating opioid systems in the brain that respond to pain. Sometimes in pain conditions, the central nervous system remembers the pain, even if the injury is healed. Acupuncture helps to reteach the brain and nervous system to be healthy again.
The acupuncture needles are inserted into meridian points associated with the condition a patient has. The needles are very fine. The needle is thinner than your hair diameter!
