Does Acupuncture Help Reduce Pain?

There have been numerous studies that have shown that acupuncture can help to ease, chronic low back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritic knee pain, and even migraine and tension headaches (Acupuncture in Depth, 2017). It is estimated that 80% of Americans suffer from low back pain. With growing numbers of people experiencing pain and an opioid drug epidemic, it is important to have effective treatment options. Acupuncture is thought to help reduce pain by:

  • Releases beta-endorphins which work as the bodies own opioids and lower pain thresholds
  • Changes cells in connective tissue helping to ease pain
  • Reduces inflammation via vagus nerve activation

“For months I had constant, terrible leg pain that had been treated by a chiropractor, general practitioner, an osteopath, a yoga massage therapist and nothing brought me relief. Then my osteopath actually recommended that I try acupuncture. I looked around in the area and found Aiden Seraphim who has helped me tremendously. I cannot say enough good things about him and his treatment. Within five weeks my constant leg pains were almost gone. Aiden treats the whole person; he talks with you thoroughly to learn about you and he checks your pulses etc.to figure out where the problem lies. Then he applies needles or/and oils, all in a very relaxed and soothing atmosphere. His treatment is good for body and soul and I keep on going to him just to stay in good health.”
