Acupuncture and Pain Management

The 2000 year old practice of acupuncture is a vital part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).  It is a proven method to relieve pain and restore all bodily functions. The fundamentals of TCM and acupuncture revolve around the belief that nothing in the body is independent, even the source of pain.

Pain felt in any part of the body naturally disrupts all the systems of the body.  Whenever a person experiences pain or injury it can be attributed to a blockage of Qi (chi) energy. This energy flows through the body and connects every system within it. When the flow of Qi is blocked by pain or injury every system in the body suffers and requires attention and care, not just the site that hurts. Acupuncture is seen as an effective way of taking care of the entire body regardless of the type or location of the pain.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is a severe problem that can significantly disrupt one’s entire life. Therefore, when acupuncture works to relieve pain, other areas of one’s life inevitably improve as well.  Areas of life that pain can affect and which acupuncture can help improve include:

How Acupuncture Helps

Acupuncture allows various parts of the body to be stimulated.  This stimulation prompts the brain to release endorphins and increase circulation. When this happens, the flow of Qi is being restored and the body’s functioning begins to improve all around. All of the nerve endings that are touched during acupuncture send signals of relief throughout the entire body. This naturally opens all the pathways, clears Qi blockage, and allows for an instant sense of relief regardless of the source of the pain.
