Are you wary of making any New Year resolutions to achieve better health & fitness because you haven’t been able to stick to them in the past? Or are you dealing with a chronic pain or injury that is blocking your path to better health? The good news is you can find healing in the New Year through acupuncture.
Acupuncture is traditional Chinese medicine that has been proven to protect the body from pain, illness, and disease. Acupuncture can remove energy blocks, dispel pathogenic factors, and prevent stagnation of vital energy (Qi) trapped within the body.
From a scientific point of view, some theories as to how acupuncture can relieve pain and improve healing include:
- Neurotransmitter theory: Acupuncture stimulates the secretion of certain substances in the brain that improve immunity and reduces inflammation.
- Stimulation of the Autonomic Nervous System: Acupuncture can cause the release of acetylcholine,norepinephrine, and other substances that can block neuropathic pain signals.
- Optimizing Blood Chemistry: Triglyceride, cholesterol, and phospholipid levels in the blood can be optimized with acupuncture creating a better environment for healing of tissues.
- Vascular-interstitial theory: The transmission of important nutrients through the blood vessels to injured tissue is enhanced with acupuncture treatment causing faster healing and repair.
