Hello all its JP your friendly neighborhood Acupuncturist!
Treating pain with acupuncture is easy! For me I am re-establishing the proper flow of energy and blood to the body, allowing it to heal the effected area relieving tension and pain. When I treat pain I see it as an imbalance in the flow of qi + blood.
Linked is an interesting article highlighting new research showing the different ways acupuncture relives pain from a physiological point of view.
The more you know, the better you heal!!
All the best in health,
