How it works
Medical acupuncture is a powerful treatment which can relieve the systoms of physical and psychological conditions and encourage the patient's body to heal and repair itself.
Medical acupuntcture stimulates the nerves in the skin and muscles and can produce a variety of effects.
Acupuncture increases the body's release of natural pain killers-endorphin and serotonin in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signal is received.
