Contemporary Acupuncture Explained
Contemporary Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles over carefully selected areas of the body where nerves and their receptors are found. This stimulates numerous responses in the central nervous system (scientifically documented), that are of potential benefit for many conditions.
How does it work?
It works by activating the natural pain control and healing mechanisms of the body. It improves local circulation and muscle nutrition, restoring muscle strenth and decreasing pain. It normalizes nerve commmunication at many levels of the central nervous system, resulting in better hormonal, visceral and muscular activity, and a higher sense of well being and relaxation.
What makes contemporary acupuncture so different?
Contemporary Acupuncture practitioners are conventional health care professionals with a special skill. They design your acupuncture treatments based on a thorough evaluation of your neurofunction. They select specific goals based on the most important physiological functions in need of regulation, using precise peripheral nerve stimulation sites to best promote these therapeutic responses. All acupuncture interventions are potentially beneficial because of their expected effects on human physiology. Contemporary Acupuncture practitioners have studied these effects and know how to best achieve the desired therapeutic goals in a clean, logical, reproducible, and scientific manner.
