Widely practiced in China, acupuncture could be the holistic pain management you’ve been looking for. By deactivating parts of the brain in the limbic system (which is involved in pain perception) your pain symptoms may become deactivated too. Millions of Americans are now turning to acupuncture to relieve chronic pain, high blood pressure and nausea. It can also help with anxiety, stress and depression.*
Acupuncture can feel tingly and warm, but should not feel sharp. Check out holistic healing centers in your community, or ask your primary care doctor for a holistic referral to learn more about how acupuncture can help you.
