What is medical acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient form of alternative medicine originating in China. Thin needles varying in sizes are inserted into acupoints, the body lesions reflex points. Acupuncture aims to balance and improve the flow of a person’s “qi” or life force energy, improve vitality, blood circulation, and restore the body’s natural balance. MSK Osteopath and Acupuncture Birstall offer this alternative medical practice.
In treating chronic pains through medical acupuncture, stimulation of specific acupoints has an inhibitory influence on pain, and acupuncture works by modulating endorphin levels through the inactivation of the source of pain. Essentially, medical acupuncture alleviates theawareness of pain, bringing much-needed relief to those who suffer from it.
Medical acupuncture is highly recommended for those suffering chronic neck and back pain, fibromyalgia, temporomandibular joint disorder, and osteoarthritis.
