Back Pain

  • Suffering from back pain?
  • Looking for long-term, pharmaceutical-free relief?
  • Acupuncture can help.

Using hair-thin needles placed at strategic points across your body, at differing depths, the process of acupuncture is a truly painless and highly effective treatment for back and neck pain. Acupuncture provides an immediate release of tension, assists with reducing the sensation of pain, and boosts the body’s natural immune functions.

We can isolate three particular ways in which acupuncture works with your body to reduce back pain and assist in the healing of many back and neck conditions.

Release of opioid peptides

Opioids are naturally occurring chemicals in the brain that have an analgesic effect. The release of these opioids plays a significant role in the reduction of pain. It is widely understood that acupuncture stimulates the release of these chemicals into your brain, providing the desired pain-dampening effect.

Alteration in the secretion of neurotransmitters and neurohormones

Acupuncture is understood to activate the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, altering the secretion of these particular chemicals. These chemicals play a large role in our sensation of pain, as well as affecting the activity of certain organs. Documentation and evidence supports the findings that acupuncture can reduce the sensation of pain and can also enhance the body’s natural immune functions.

Stimulation of electromagnetic points on the body

We have 2,000 points on our bodies that are theorized to be strategic conductors of electromagnetic signals – the stimulation of these through acupuncture is believed to start the flow of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.

We are able to effectively manage pain, improve circulation, maximize your natural immunity, and promote healing through the practice of acupuncture. You will notice the difference: and you won’t suffer from any side-effects!
