Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called “endorphins”. These chemicals mimic
morphine by attaching to opiate receptor sites found throughout the
nervous system. Endorphines help to block pathways that relay pain
messages from the body to the brain, resulting in relief of pain,
general relaxation and biomechanical restoration of the body’s own
internal regulation systems.
The improved energy and bio-mechanical balance produced by acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities, reducing inflammation, and promoting physical and emotional well-being.
