Acupuncture works by improving the flow of oxygen, nutrients and blood flow through a specific network of blood vessels to nourish every cell of the body and treat the number one cause of disease – BLOOD STAGNATION.

Any area of the body not receiving sufficient blood flow cannot function properly as healing needs constant blood flow in order to occur. Acupuncture causes your blood vessels to dilate and increases blood flow to specifically targeted areas of the body relieving pain, improving organ function and preventing ageing.

Acupuncture works by stimulating the nervous system and activating nociceptor sensory nerves and proprioceptor fibres that travel from the skin to the spine then into the brain, improving the nerve signals it receives and causing it to release natural painkillers to shut off the pain signal eliminating it.

Acupuncture works in 5 main ways:

  • The flow of oxygen
  • The flow of blood
  • The health of your vessels
  • The health of your organs
  • The health of your nervous system
