How Science Explains Acupuncture and Pain-Relief…

Pain is relieved by stimulating acupuncture points. This prompts nerve fibers in the extremities to communicate with the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland (at the base of the brain).

Whether your Fibromyalgia pain involves a history of physical trauma due to auto accident, injury or surgery, emotional trauma due to past abuse, P.T.S.D. or other, acupuncture can help relieve pain and improve energy and mood along with helping the individual’s body to balance itself.
