Acupuncture Therapy at Farabaugh Chiropractic
Acupuncture stimulates both sensory nerves under the skin and the body’s muscles. This stimulation allows the body to produce natural pain-relieving endorphins which are responsible for the beneficial effects of acupuncture. Some conditions these endorphins help with are back pain, neck pain, joint pain, stress, anxiety, addiction disorders, allergies, migraines, digestion problems nausea, menopausal symptoms, fertility issues and the desire to quit smoking.
