The process of acupuncture involves inserting small needles into the skin at different points, it’s a relatively painless procedure and those with a fear of needles need not be scared! This triggers certain responses and the stimulation of nerves under the skin and muscle tissue which then produces the pain relieving hormone endorphin.
Those suffering from ailments such as neck, back and shoulder pain have found this to be an effective treatment in reducing the pain. Other ailments such as the symptoms of arthritis can also benefit from the results of acupuncture as an alternative therapy. For those that are hesitant to go down the route of painkillers, or find that the painkillers no longer improve the pain, acupuncture can provide an alternative source of relief.
