TCM is a term used to refer to a group of natural healing therapies originated in China. TCM healing therapies are used to prevent and minimize symptoms caused by chronic and acute health conditions. To know more about what TCM healing therapies we offer, please visit the services page.

Acupuncture activates the nervous system and promotes blood circulation. I will explain how acupuncture works in 5 simple steps:

Step 1 – Acupuncture activates your peripheral nervous system. Acupuncture is a sensorial experience. The stimulation of the skin leveled acupuncture point at needle insertion activates your peripheral nervous system.

Step 2 – Acupuncture needles cause micro-damage to the tissue. This activates the central nervous system and specific areas of the brain depending on the acupuncture point been stimulated.

Step 3 – The brain is induced to release endorphins and other biochemical substances into the bloodstream. This is to repair the micro-damage caused by the acupuncture needles.

Step 4 – The blood circulates throughout the whole body distributing endorphins among other biochemical substances. Endorphins are natural painkillers and stress reducers.

Step 5 – With regular treatments acupuncture can help reduce the frequency and intensity of pain and stress. What is the result? It improves your wellness and it leads you to a more productive and happier life.

Acupuncture can feel like:

  • a mild ache with or without an itchy sensation
  • a light pressure at/or around the surrounding tissue been treated
  • an “electrical sensation” moving at the site of needle insertion or at other areas of the body
  • a slight change in body temperature can occur
  • fullness at the acupuncture point
  • a warm sensation at the acupuncture point

This is different for every patient. It directly depends on, the health condition presented, the intensity and frequency of the manifesting symptoms and your lifestyle. Chronic health conditions need longer care than acute ones.
