Acupuncture –how it can benefit you
Acupuncture has been practiced in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Often described as a means of pain relief, it is in fact used to treat a wide variety of illnesses. Its focus is primarily on improving the overall well-being and functioning of the patient, rather than purely isolated symptoms. Here’s how acupuncture could benefit you.

Back pain is experienced by 8 in 10 people in their lifetime. Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system, which can encourage the release of chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord and brain. This then has a positive effect, reducing chronic pain symptoms for the sufferer.
