Acupuncture has been shown to be extremely effective for acute or chronic pain.  Acupuncture stimulates the release of adenosine (the body’s natural painkiller), stimulates the tissue repair by reducing inflammation, and improving the oxygen flow. The treatment can improve the tissue function and strengthen the weakness and control pain.  Neuro imaging study shows that acupuncture can increase the numbness of receptors for pain-reducing Neuro transmitters.  Acupuncture has no side effects.  The World of Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) acknowledge the benefits of acupuncture in treating and eliminating wide range of problems in our body.
