Acupuncture can be helpful with acute and chronic pain conditions such as back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches and migraines, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and joint pain. Acupuncture is also helpful for insomnia, fatigue, digestive issues, weight management, gynecological problems, and psychological issues including anxiety, depression, and addiction.
How Can Acupuncture Help?
By inserting small needles superficially into specific sites on the body, the needles trigger a response from the nervous system. This response from the nervous system leads our brain to release a cascade of natural painkillers, increasing blood flow to the problematic site, and relaxing the muscles to the surrounding area.
