Natural, Effective Treatment

Acupuncture creates a stimulation and sensation at the needles that send signals to the brain to release endorphins/enkephalins (pain-killing signals). After a few hours the signal gets weak again. Repeat treatments maintain this neural response; reminding the body to maintain and re-establish a normal signal to the brain. This is why repeat treatments of acupuncture are needed for a period of time to get the full benefits. This mechanism is especially important for the treatment of pain but also applies to any other condition as well. This is how acupuncture is effective at treating pain. This mechanism is especially important for the treatment of pain but also applies to any other condition as well. We know from research that acupuncture releases endorphins and enkephalins in the central nervous system (CNS) and that these neuropeptides play a role in analgesia.

Acupuncture works in an accumulative effect, much like Chiropractic or Physical Therapy. Repeat treatments maintain this neural response; reminding the body to maintain and re-establish a normal signal to the brain. 

At the Neuro Point clinic, we have a success rate of 95% in reducing pain to manageable levels. Patients typically start to begin feeling relief after just a few sessions.
