How does it work?

Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called “endorphins” which block pathways that relay pain messages from the body to the brain, resulting in pain relief. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities, reducing inflammation, and promoting physical and emotional well-being.
