Acupuncture is a method by which single use sterilized
needles are inserted into specific points throughout the body. This
stimulates the body to produce its own pain relievers (endorphins) to
block the pain pathways to the brain resulting in pain relief, general
relaxation of the involved muscle groups and tissue healing. Acupuncture
has been proven to be effective in the treatment of tendonitis, back
pain, headaches, frozen shoulder, muscle spasms, arthritis and many
other acute and chronic pain syndrome.
