There are many benefits to having acupuncture, here's a few -
Acupuncture triggers specific nerve points in the body, which release endorphins and reduce pain. It has been proven that acupuncture activates pain-supressing receptors producing adenosine and affects the brain’s longterm ability to regulate pain.
A hollistic alternative for those with an intolerance to pain killers
Acupuncture is useful for those who do not respond well to pain killers whether it's due to allergies or who do not wish to take pain medication.
Sleep and relaxation benefits
Acupuncture induces relaxation and wellbeing, so naturally is great at improving sleep patterns. During the treatment, patients experience deep relaxation and some even fall asleep. Many people report better sleep after a session – which lasts for several nights.
Improves a large range of conditions
Emotional disorders, arthritis, musculoskeletal pain, insomnia, migraines and infertility can all be treated through acupuncture.
