Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve function. This is done by inserting needles, with an option of applying electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points. This stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals (endorphins & serotonin) in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones, which influence the bodies own internal regulating system.
The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of neurological and musculoskeletal conditions, including: Headaches, neck pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, various forms of tendonitis, low back pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis, etc.
