Acupuncture Treatment in Lekki, Ikoyi

Acupuncture dates back to thousands of years in China, Korea, and eastern civilization. It was believed that diseases are due to an imbalance in the body’s energy. Energy runs through the body through channels and when these channels are blocked, pain and disease are present. Acupuncture unblocks these channels and energy flow is resumed.

Modern acupuncture has a different explanation for the effects of this treatment. Acupuncture is the art of stimulating specific points on the body by needling or electrical impulse to promote natural healing, control pain and normalize function.

What is medical acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the practice of stimulating specific points on the body, by either needling or electrical impulse, to promote natural healing, control pain, and normalize function. Our physiotherapists, chiropractors and massage therapists may use acupuncture as part of their treatments, and within the scope of their respective practices. 

How does acupuncture work?

Needling acupuncture points stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain or will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones that influence the body’s own biochemical balance produced by acupuncture, resulting in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities and in promoting physical and emotional well-being. The scientific community agrees that, although there are many benefits in the benefits of acupuncture for treating pain, more research and evidence is needed. Considering the low risk and the cost-effectiveness of this modality, acupuncture is commonly used to treat many pain conditions in conjunction with physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage.
