What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been used by the Chinese for many years to treat a great variety of problems. In recent years acupuncture has become more popular in the West and is used within Physiotherapy as a form of pain relief. It can be very effective on both acute and chronic conditions due to its effect of stimulating endogenous opoids (the natural pain killers) and other neurotransmitters such as seratonin (the “happy hormone”) produced within the body.
Many people report a reduction in pain, improved sleeping pattern and a general well being boost with acupuncture. Research is now showing very positive results for treatment of specific areas with acupuncture.
