Acupuncture for pain relief

Pain, in any part of the body, can be very debilitating and can greatly affect all aspects of everyday life. Acupuncture is known for its effectiveness for treating all pain related conditions.

Care Cure treats conditions including rheumatoid pain, back, neck and shoulder pain, injuries, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, frozen shoulder, and tennis/golf elbow. Acupuncture and other traditional Chinese medicine treatments treat the root cause of the condition, and by doing so facilitate the long term healing of your condition.

Fine needles are placed in specific acupuncture points which stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain, including endorphins, encephalin (a type of endorphin ), and other neurochemicals. These natural chemicals can either change the experience of pain or trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones that influence the body's own internal regulating system. This can bring about a normalising effect on neuroendocrine (nerve and hormone ) function. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture stimulates the body's natural healing abilities, thus promoting physical as well as emotional wellbeing.

Care Cure also treats pain with acupressure, a therapeutic Chinese massage that works on the same principles as acupuncture, but instead of using needles hand pressure is applied on specific acu-points.
