What You Should Know About Acupuncture
Originating in China, acupuncture uses hair-thin needles to stimulate specific points on the body and is a relatively painless and often relaxing form of treatment. Modern acupuncture draws on research and practices from all over the world, and recent studies have shown that acupuncture can impact neurotransmitters and help the transition from the “fight or flight” response to the “rest and digest response.
How Acupuncture Treats Neck Pain
Pain and stiffness from muscle strain due to overuse or acute injury, muscular imbalances in the upper back, neck and shoulders, and other neck ailments are common reasons that clients seek acupuncture services. When based on an appropriate diagnosis, acupuncture treatments can help relieve neck tension and pain.
Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the Central Nervous system and trigger the release of certain neurotransmitters. These chemicals can reduce pain and promote a sense of wellness. After a few sessions, patients often experience less tension and pain. While some patients have immediate relief, most require a few sessions before seeing sustained results.
