Acupuncture and Pain

In Traditional Chinese Medicine there is a fundamental theory that if the Qi is blocked, there will be pain. 

This blockage means that the Qi and/or blood are not circulating properly.

Specific acupuncture points are selected that have the action to move Qi and blood.

The activation of these points will increase Qi and blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and release pain reliever and feel good chemicals such as endorphins.

The hypothalamus and pituitary gland produce/release pain relievers and feel good chemicals such as endorphins that block pain.

Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to eliminate pain from the body.
