How does Acupuncture work?
Many things happen when you insert a needle into the skin:
It creates a micro-trauma that stimulates the activity of immune cells that control inflammation.
Sends a signal through the nervous system to the brain: chemicals such as endorphins, norepinephrine and enkephalin are then released. Some of these substances are 10-200 times more potent than morphine!
Helps stimulate blood flow: Restoring proper blood flow is vital to healing and maintenance of health.
How do I prepare for my treatment?
To prepare for your treatment it is best to wear comfortable loose fitting clothing that you can roll up to your knees and elbows, to administer treatment easily. An intake form will need to be submitted to your acupuncturist before the treatment. (online or 10 min before session). The form will be evaluated and acupuncture will be administered gently.
