ACUPUNCTURE AND PAIN MANAGEMENT at Health In The Bay.
Acupuncture is a very targeted treatment for pain relief and rehab. Our central nervous system has a pain modulation system, which can be used to inhibit the transmission of the sensation of pain to our brain. During Acupuncture treatments when needles are inserted into the body, a signal is sent to and activates the body’s own pain control system. A number of different hormonal substances such as endorphins, serotonin and acetylcholine are increased in secretion. The release of these hormones into the body produces significant pain relief.
Pain is a signal from our body that there is a problem. It can also be considered as a signal for help. The efficacy of acupuncture treatment involves not only temporary pain relief, but also the improvement of blood circulation and achieving overall balance of your physical condition.
Ann has years of experience using Acupuncture as her tool for pain management and has a special interest in chronic pain management both for relief and rehab.
