It’s hard to believe that it’s 2020, but with the New Year in full swing, isn’t it time you finally did something about your pain? Are you tired of masking your symptoms with harmful drugs that are never going to treat the root cause of your condition?
Over 115 million people suffer from various types of chronic pain disorders ranging from fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, neuropathy, back, hip and neck pain to name a few. Whether trauma or degenerative disease has caused your pain, the consensus is usually the same; people want their pain to go away. But how do you know that the options you’ve been given are right for you?
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment of acute and chronic pain. Acupuncture is a safe and natural method of pain management that has no harmful side effects. Pain medication can further damage the internal functions of the body. Acupuncture addresses the root of the problem by opening the meridians or energy pathways that have been blocked by trauma, stress, disease, poor diet, and lifestyle choices.

Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that dates back over 5,000 years. It is based on the theory that energy (QI) moves through the body using specific pathways (meridians). An imbalance in the flow Qi or energy moving through the meridians may cause a physiological effect in the body over time. Stress, poor eating habits, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalances, and strenuous activity may cause the body to become symptomatic. Symptoms such as, pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, food cravings, irritability, brain fog, indigestion, and heart palpitations may occur if harmony is not restored to the Qi flow of the internal body.
Acupuncture Physicians use sterile, thin, single use, disposable needles to activate specific points on the body to stimulate a healing function. A slight pinch, tingling, or burning sensation may occur at the site of the needle insertion for a brief moment. A typical acupuncture treatment may last 20-30 minutes. This time allows the body to relax and make internal changes. Acupuncture causes the brain to release endorphins a natural opiate-like effect may occur. The analgesic like effect is very helpful in the treatment of pain. Also, a feeling of euphoria may occur after an acupuncture treatment due to the release of endorphins.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture to be effective for more than 35 common illnesses.
