Pain Relief

Removing blockage in the body

Acupuncture has been used for centuries for pain relief. Ancient Chinese found that human body consists of different meridian channels and Qi (vital energy) flows freely within. If a person is having pain then there may be blockage in one or more channels. Pain may be relieved by removing the stagnant Qi.

The existence of meridian channels has been investigated with modern technologies and research. It is deduced that acupuncture may relieve pain by releasing endorphins, the body's natural pain-killing chemicals, and by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood.

Electro-acupuncture is the use of electrical current to stimulate acupuncture points. It is generally used for relieving musculoskeletal pain in our clinic.
