Whether you have knee, shoulder, back or neck issues, acupuncture is used to treat many forms of musculoskeletal pain.
Acupuncture produces its effects through regulating the nervous system and stimulating the release of pain-killing biochemicals such as endorphins. Additionally, acupuncture can strengthen and increase immune system cells at specific sites within the body.
Studies have shown that acupuncture may alter brain chemistry by changing the release of neurotransmitters and neurohormones, thus affecting the parts of the central nervous system related to sensation and involuntary body functions, such as immune reactions and processes that regulate a person’s blood pressure, blood flow, and body temperature.
Acupuncture is used to treat many different types of pain including:
- Knee pain
- Menstrual cramps
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ
- Endometriosis pain
- Lower back pain
- Muscle injuries
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Adhesions where scar tissue has formed
Instead of focusing on individual symptoms for people suffering from pain, Sophie focuses on treating the root cause of the pain with emphasis on the entire body. Acupuncture activates your own internal healing system, and the results are effective and long lasting. After weekly acupuncture treatments with Sophie, you may experience:
Acute and Chronic Pain Relief
