PAIN SYNDROMES

Although acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of painful conditions, only recently has it become scientifically recognized as an effective pain therapy.  In fact, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), acupuncture is as effective as morphine in treating chronic pain.  Acupuncture treatment and related modalities have been shown clinically to trigger the central nervous system to release pain-relieving chemicals, such as endorphins (derived from the termsendogenous and morphine).  Some types of natural endorphins are over 500 times stronger than morphine!
