Acupuncture in Newton Abbot

By working with your nervous system, acupuncture can very quickly effect changes in your body as the needles immediately stimulate neural paths up to the brain and back in fractions of a second. But it is not good enough just to clear pain, you need to restore blood flow to the injured area. It does this too. Whilst analgesic medication (pain relief) numbs down the pain receptors in the body, acupuncture actually restores healthy blood flow and function to the area.

What is Acupuncture Treatment?

Medical acupuncture involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles.
This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins.

Who Needs Acupuncture Treatments?

Acupuncture is beneficial for anyone suffering from a range of musculoskeletal conditions. A course of acupuncture usually creates longer lasting pain relief than when a single treatment is used.

How is the treatment done?

An initial acupuncture session usually lasts 20 minutes to 1 hour and involves an assessment of your general health, medical history and a physical examination, followed by insertion of the acupuncture needles.
