Have you ever wondered how acupuncture can do wonders for your body? Well let me tell you a secret, it can help reduce inflammation.

Acupuncture stimulates the production of natural painkillers in your body, which can help reduce inflammation and promote healing. Acupuncture can also improve blood flow which can help deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the inflamed area, reducing inflammation.

Acupuncture uses fine needles to stimulate points on the body’s surface that scientists believe send nerve and biochemical signals to corresponding organs and systems. This allows the body to reduce swelling and quiet unwanted immune responses and allergic reactions. The length of time needed for it to work depends on what medical problem is being treated and the type of acupuncture being used.

Three factors, timing of treatment, placement of the acupuncture needles, and intensity of the stimulation can produce markedly different outcomes in modulating inflammation. Your acupuncturist will discuss with you the best treatment protocol to help you achieve the best outcome for your specific needs.

Next time you feel the desire to take anti-inflammatories, try acupuncture instead.
