Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine and has been developed and practiced for over thousands of years to refine its treatment. It is based on scientific evidence that shows the treatment can stimulate nerves under the skin and in the muscle tissue. This results in the body producing pain relieving hormones such as endorphin. Acupuncture has been known to relieve feelings of stress and tension helping to alleviate many health issues!
Over many years of study acupuncture has been shown to provide treatment for various aches and pains such as back, neck or shoulder pain and joint pain such as arthritis. Acupuncture is an excellent alternative for those who wish to provide themselves with additional treatment alongside conventional medicines or treatments and can provide an alternative to those who cannot take or wish to avoid conventional therapies.
