Acupuncture is unique in that it blends ancient thinking with modern evidence based treatment, with spectacular results! Find out more about how acupuncture works here
Increasingly modern research is able to prove the effectiveness of this ancient medicine in the scientific terms that we in the West can better understand. For those who love the science, an overview of the scientific evidence for acupuncture can be found here. In a nutshell, research shows that acupuncture treatment effectively releases the body's own natural painkillers and causes down regulation of pain signals. Acupuncture also adjusts the nervous system which allows for an improvement in circulation and healing and allows the body to function optimally.
