Neurological Health

Repair, Rewire, Revive, Renew

A neurological disorder refers to a problem with the nervous system, which is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates the body’s activities.


Nerve pain can arise from trauma, inflammation, stroke, disease, infection, nerve degeneration, exposure to toxic chemicals and nutrient deficiencies.

Acupuncture stimulates the brain to release chemicals, neurotransmitters , gasotransmitters and opioids, into the body that reduce sensitivity to pain, reduce inflammation and normalize the nervous system. It also activates nerve receptors that decrease or "gate-out" pain signals. Acupuncture works to interrupt the pain signal by allowing the nerve to calm down thereby reducing pain.

Additionally, acupuncture increases the amount of endorphins and modulates gasotransmitters, like nitric oxide, in the body and focuses them on the affected areas. These natural chemicals reduce inflammation that can cause, or be a result of, nerve pain. Acupuncture promotes actual healing by altering the body's gases, fluids and electrical system to allow the transfer of material and electrical energy between normal and injured tissue, thereby reducing the amount of recovery time.
