How Acupuncture Works

For many, Acupuncture is mysterious.  Perhaps you’ve heard from someone that it works great for them, or maybe you’ve heard that it works for this or that, but you may not really understand how it works.  We know from extensive clinical experience and scientific research that Acupuncture works to restore health in several ways:

  1. It improves circulation by vasodilating tissues so blood can flow better and reducing blood pressure.
  2. It modulates the neuro-endocrine system causing our natural pain killer hormones to be released that lower inflammation, reduce pain and get us out of “fight or flight” mode.
  3. It causes an immune system response to create new tissue to replace diseased tissue.
  4. It reduces inflammation that impairs nerve conduction to the brain. Pain can be a result of nerve signals not getting through.

You can see how Acupuncture can therefore help with a number of conditions including things like neuropathy, high blood pressure, pain, anxiety, acute and chronic injuries, infertility, and much more.
