How acupuncture can help

Acupuncture may help to relieve pain and congestion in people with sinusitis by
  • increasing endorphins  and neuropeptide Y levels
  • stimulating nerves located in muscles and other tissues, which leads to release of endorphins and other neurohumoral factors,
  • reducing inflammation, by promoting release of vascular and immunomodulatory factors
  • enhancing natural killer cell activities and modulating the number and ratio of immune cell types
  • increasing local microcirculation , which reduces swelling.
Acupuncture works on different pathways

The pathways which acupuncture uses are myriad, and in any 1 person or medical condition the pathways will be different.  We urge people to try treatment at least 6 times for their condition before evaluating.  The outcomes for different conditions and different people makes it impossible to predict how any one person will respond.

Acupuncture is a tried and tested system which has been used in China and other eastern cultures for thousands of years.   It can  restore, promote and maintain good health. Its benefits are now widely acknowledged all over the world.  In the past decade  acupuncture has begun to feature more prominently in mainstream healthcare.
