How Does Acupuncture Work?

Today’s modern Acupuncture Treatments come from practices found in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that energy—referred to as Qi (pronounced chee)—constantly flows throughout the body through pathways, referred to as meridians. If the meridians are blocked, Qi can not reach areas of the body which results in pain and illnesses.

In modern practices, Acupuncture works in a similar way. Here are some of the ways Acupuncture Treatments help the body:

  • Acupuncture stimulates the release of pain-relieving endorphins from the nervous system to the brain
  • Acupuncture with Electric Pulses, influences the electrical currents of the body and clears up areas that have poor circulation
  • Acupuncture affects the release of neurotransmitters, which are substances that transmit nerve impulses to the brain, making connections easier
  • Acupuncture stimulates circulation of blood for those with poor circulation
  • Acupuncture influences the autonomic nervous system and helps with heart rate, anxiety, and respiration amongst other organ benefits

Fibromyalgia: What Is It? How severe is it?

Fibromyalgia: What Is It? How severe is it?

Until recently, many suffering from chronic pain were told simply that fibromyalgia was not a physical condition, but a mental illness. Doctor’s would even tell their otherwise entirely healthy patients that the condition was virtually imaginary – that the brain was sending false signals and that the pain wasn’t ‘real’. Fortunately for sufferers, the medical establishment has done a 180 on this notion, and fibromyalgia is now nearly universally recognized as a legitimate medical condition.
