Why Acupuncture is the Perfect Choice for Pain Management in Hove

Chinese acupuncture in Hove and elsewhere is one of the best ways to manage pain without introducing drugs or chemicals into your body. This is because acupuncture involves inserting thin, small needles into specific acupuncture points on the body in order to produce a response and bring the body back into balance. This can help to alleviate pain and make a wide variety of conditions and ailments much more tolerable.

Chinese acupuncture in Hove and elsewhere provides the benefit of alleviating discomfort and relieving pain by relaxing the muscles and prompting the release of endorphins and serotonin. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals, while serotonin is a chemical that helps to make a person feel happiness. Acupuncture also leads to decreased inflammation because it increases the production of cortisol, the hormone that controls inflammation.

Chinese acupuncture in Hove and elsewhere can also promote healthy blood circulation, which can lead to reduced pain from such conditions as headaches and even migraines. This is because the acupuncture works to influence brain chemicals that constrict and dilate blood vessels. By alleviating that vessel constriction, there is increased blood flow, which leads to the alleviation of pain.

Acupuncture also works to regulate the hormones in the body’s stress response (which consists of the chemicals dopamine, noradrenaline, serotonin, and cortisol). The acupuncture helps to initiate relaxation, allowing the body to cope with stress more easily.

Acupuncture enables the body’s nervous system to relax and enact the “rest and digest” response, the opposite response of the “fight or flight” response. When the body enacts the “rest and digest” response, it responds to pain less intensely than in the “fight or flight” response, leading to the body being able to tolerate pain more easily.

Acupuncture can help to stimulate the release of fibroblasts, cells that are found in connective tissue that produce collagen proteins to help maintain tissue health. As a result, acupuncture can help damaged tissue to heal and repair itself over time.

For all of the aforementioned reasons, acupuncture can provide a drug-free, medication-free way to effectively manage and alleviate pain.
