Acupuncture is traditionally associated for pain management in relation to back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, headaches and migraines. Chemotherapy patients also use acupuncture to treat the fatigue, pain, nausea and vomiting caused by their treatment.
An acupuncturist views pain as an energetic imbalance and is able to influence this imbalance by inserting very fine needles at certain points along channels called Acupoints in the body.
Heat treatment (called Moxibustion) or cupping may also be used by the acupuncturist as a means of pain management. Much research shows that acupuncture causes a release of endorphins - a natural painkiller produced by the human body.
