Acupuncture and Pain Management

Acupuncture PainAcupuncture is a very targeted treatment for pain relief and rehab. Our central nervous system has a pain modulation system, which can be used to inhibit the transmission of pain feeling to our brain. During acupuncture treatments when needles are inserted into the body, a signal is sent to and activates the body’s own pain control system. A number of different hormonal substances such as endorphins, serotonin and acetylcholine are increased in secretion. The releasing of these hormones into the body, produces significant pain relieving effect.

The pain feeling is a signal from our body with problems. It can also be considered as a signal for help. The efficacy of acupuncture treatment is not only temporary pain relief but also help improving blood circulation and achieving overall balance of physical condition.

Ann and Victor have both had years of experience using Acupuncture as a tool for pain management and have special interests in chronic pain management both relief and rehab.
