Reduce Pain & Swelling
Releasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, while increasing blood flow and energy, acupuncture helps stimulate the body’s system, reducing pain and swelling.
Improve Circulation
In addition to stimulating stagnated energy, acupuncture also releases constricted blood vessels that inhibit blood flow, promoting vascular system health and boosting energy levels.
Recover From Injury
Placing acupuncture needles in the local site of the injury can help flush blood to it, encouraging healing. This can aid the healing of sport-related injuries, MVA injuries, and other issues.
Enhance Wellness
By increasing blood flow and releasing tension, acupuncture can improve body function, including the digestive, endocrine, cardiovascular, and immune systems.
