Acupuncture is the stimulation, by the insertion of needles, of specific points on the body which can alter various biochemical and physiological conditions. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural pain-relieving neurohormones. Acupuncture affects the functioning of the hormonal system, promotes reduced inflammation, improves circulation and relief from pain. When performed on appropriate patients by our trained physiotherapists, acupuncture can be a safe and natural way to encourage healing.
