Frequently Asked Questions About Acupuncture

What can acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture has been shown to help treat muscle tension and chronic pain, reduce stress and anxiety, and help with nausea.
Can acupuncture help with nerve pain?
Acupuncture treatment can stimulate the nervous system to release naturally occurring opioids. These opioids help suppress the transmission of pain signals. Acupuncture can also help promote blood flow to accelerate healing.
Where are acupuncture points?
Acupuncture points lie along meridians that are distributed all over the body. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each meridian represents one of the major organs.
How does acupuncture relieve pain?
Acupuncture relieves pain by stimulating the nervous system to release natural endorphins. It also modulates the activity in the portion of the brain responsible for the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with mood.
Which is better, acupuncture or massage?
They really work best in tandem. Acupuncture is better at decreasing overall nervous system activity which drives increased muscle tone. That being said, massage is able to break down adhesions in the musculature and fascia that form over time from elevated neurological input and stress.
