Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) modalities help regulate the nervous system to:
Change the way the brain-body perceive pain by altering neural pathways
Activate the body's own opioid system to produce endogenous painkillers including GABA, ATP and adenosine, substance P, and others.
Improves the body's sensitivity to opioids or painkillers
Acupuncture can be a crucial tool in your pain management care plan by supporting healing from the inside out instead of placing a temporary bandaid on the pain problem.
If you're aiming to live more comfortably in your body and the regiment you've been following hasn't gotten you to where you want to be yet, acupuncture can help you get there.
