Placing and manipulating the acupuncture needles causes an increase in local blood flow and along with it, an increase in nutrients and immune cells. These are the ingredients for healing. There is also evidence that acupuncture tends to have a balancing effect on brain chemistry, hormone levels, and immune cell function. Because the brain controls everything in the body, a balanced brain should allow for more effective healing, speeding the reduction of pain. Acupuncture simultaneously treats the underlying disease.
We understand how pain can impact your quality of life and your everyday activities, we strive to alleviate your pain as quickly as we can, usually patients may experience relief after a single treatment although a series of treatments are generally required to maintain long term pain relief and healing along with chronic pain usually will require more treatments.
