Acupuncture works for muscle pain, joint pain and even for chronic nerve pain!
You don’t have to continue to suffer from your acute or chronic pain. Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to reduce muscle tension, increase range of motion, and alleviate soreness and inflammation within the body. At North Shore Acupuncture and Natural Medicine, the use of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Craniosacral therapies, and Reiki are used to resolve pain quickly.
Acupuncture is commonly believed to affect the body in the following ways:
It stimulates electrical impulses in the body and the flow of endorphins. Endorphins are the body's natural painkiller. Acupuncture needles stimulate the signals that control the flow of endorphins in the body.
It releases naturally occurring opioids in the brain. A natural pain-relieving opioid can be released in the brain when the precise location and combination of acupuncture needle points are utilized.
Acupuncture is a powerful part of a integrated treatment plan for treating the root cause of many chronic pain and nerve pain issues that occur in the body. Today, many sports teams including Red Sox, Boston Bruins and Olympic athletes utilize acupuncture to decrease recovery time from injuries and surgeries
