  • Alpine Acupuncture - When an injury or trauma occurs there is an initial inflammatory response which begins the healing process. When this inflammation lingers, however, not only is the blood circulation to the area impaired, but the body's vital energy becomes stagnant too. Acupuncture sends a message via the nervous system which triggers a shift in the neurochemical balance, raises the neural-pain threshold, and releases the body from the "stuck" pattern it has been holding since the onset of the symptoms. This helps relieve the chronic inflammation and increases blood circulation, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the injured area so that it can properly heal. A current research project in Germany is the largest acupuncture study ever undertaken. Preliminary results are showing an 89% effective rate when treating pain with acupuncture! Of course, acupuncturists have long seen the results of this type of treatment, but now more & more patients and doctors are discovering how effective acupuncture can be. Interestingly, the German study, which involves 40,000 patients, is being paid for by their health insurance industry. Here in Washington State, most insurance plans already include acupuncture coverage for pain-related conditions.
