If you’re looking for a safe and effective form of alternative therapy for managing chronic pain, acupuncture may be the answer. At Floreat Acupuncture in Perth, our experienced practitioners use traditional Chinese medicine techniques to provide comprehensive pain relief from head to toe. Here, we explore the benefits of acupuncture for pain management and how Floreat Acupuncture can help.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture is based on the principle that energy flows through the body along specific pathways, known as meridians. According to traditional Chinese medicine, when there is an imbalance in the flow of energy, it can result in pain, illness, and other health problems. Acupuncture aims to restore the balance of energy by stimulating specific points on the body with needles.
Recent research suggests that acupuncture may work by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, and improving blood flow to the affected area. Acupuncture may also help to reduce inflammation, increase the production of serotonin, and regulate the nervous system, all of which can contribute to pain relief.
What Types of Pain Can Acupuncture Help With?
Acupuncture is commonly used to treat a variety of chronic pain conditions, including:
Headaches and migraines
At Floreat Acupuncture, we can help with these and other conditions, including pain associated with cancer, surgery, and other medical procedures.
