I'm often asked in clinic; "What does acupuncture actually do?". So I thought I'd provide you with a very brief summary of what acupuncture does and why we use it.
Clinical acupuncture is a treatment derived from an ancient Chinese method. Very fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic and preventative purposes. Western medical/clinical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture within a clinical setting. It involves stimulation of sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscle belly of the body. This results in pain relieving endorphins to be naturally released by the body. Typically a course of acupuncture creates longer lasting effects of pain relief than a single treatment.
