When did you first hear about acupuncture?
Often, it’s word of mouth when someone else
has tried it and found that it really helped
their symptoms and they suggest you try it too.
But how did acupuncture “get discovered” in the West?
Although there are stories about acupuncture being used for anaesthesia – today we look at how it can help pre- and post-surgery to help with recovery and pain.
- Reduces stress & anxiety prior to surgery
Acupuncture helps to activate the body’s parasympathetic nervous system – the rest-and-digest mode – and to ease that stress & anxiety.
- Less pain during & after surgery
- Reduces nausea & vomiting
- Less scarring & swelling
- Increases strength, range of motion and flexibility
