Acupuncture is a holistic approach to health derived from eastern medical traditions. It involves the stimulation of anatomical locations on or in the skin by a variety of techniques including the insertion of needles. There are proven benefits of acupuncture in headaches and promising evidence of effectiveness in a variety of other conditions including: nausea, dental pain, menstrual cramps, osteoarthritis, low back pain and asthma.
Acupuncture is the use of fine, sterile needles at specific points on the body’s surface to restore and maintain health. The fine needles are usually only inserted a few millimetres and this gives rise to a sensation, which should only be a mild discomfort at the most.
Modern science has shown that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. These can assist the body in healing itself and give pain relief.
