A blockage in the meridian pathway usually results in pain. Arthritis, degeneration, injury, and or surgery, can produce pain in the body. Based on an in-depth history and examination; which includes a tongue diagnosis and pulse diagnosis, Angie will determine where the energy is blocked and choose points along that energy pathway.
Acupuncture can increase the body’s natural production of endorphins and white blood cells to stimulate natural pain killers and harmonize the central nervous system. This releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord and brain to reduce pain and increase the body’s ability to heal.These biochemical changes support the body’s natural healing abilities, improve circulation, and promote physical and emotional well-being. In some cases, improved circulation may cause the pain to increase, but this is followed by accelerated repair of the tissue. Proper circulation is important not only for the blood to nourish the tissue, but also for eliminating muscle fatigue and pain-causing substances such as lactic acid.
