Acupuncture for Chronic Pain
The Stats & Facts:
Over 1.5 billion people in the world are living with chronic pain
Almost 1/3 of adults in the United State suffer from chronic pain

Acupuncture has been shown to release endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals - which has been found to be 200 times more effective than morphine at relieving pain
Living with chronic pain can severely impact the quality of your daily life. Standard treatments are often not enough, and worst case, can come with potentially dangerous side effects. More and more people are turning away from harsh and addictive opiates and pain relievers, hoping instead to find relief in ways that support their overall wellbeing.
Many people report life-changing improvements in pain by going the holistic route, particularly as it works to support the bodies natural healing processes. This is the epitome of acupuncture, which involves the insertion of tiny, hair-thin needles into specific points to balance the flow of energy, as well as impact hormone levels and neurotransmitters - including endorphins and serotonin. Endorphins are your bodies natural pain-relieving hormone; serotonin is the neurotransmitter responsible for mood. Some patients report improvement in as little as one acupuncture treatment, though series of treatments may be necessary.
