Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating specific points along what are considered to be lines of energy (meridians) on the body, most often with a needles penetrating the skin, to reduce the pain or to help treat various health conditions.

The human body is vital entity which runs harmoniously in healthy condition. When there are alterations in the vital principles of the body, the electromagnetic field around us changes, thus causing the beginning of the disease in our body.
Our Philosophy at "Fitwell Centre" is to understand the disease to heal from that point so that the disease never returns to you & health is in balanced condition.

According to National Institute of health (NIH), results from a number of studies suggest that acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as lowback pain, neck pain, & osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches. Therfore, acupuncture appears to be a reasonable option for people with chronic pain to consider.

The Mechanism of action of how acupuncture works in pain management is intresting, it seems the stimulation of specific sites on the body surface (Acupoints) exerts a marked inhibitory influnce on pain. The acupoints have been known to the Chinese for many years. Their validity in pain control has been verified by numerous researchers. One experimentally well-documented mechanism for pain relief by acupuncture is the modulation of endorphin levels. Myofascial pain is relieved primarily by inactivating the source of pain. Acupuncture apparently alleviates the awareness of pain.

So at Fitwell Centre we mainly focus on acupuncture treatments for pain management specifically for chronic pains.
