Research shows acupuncture to be effective for the reduction of pain. Acupuncture uses fine needles to stimulate acupuncture points. This has the effect of releasing endorphins to reduce pain. Acupuncture can also act on the part of the brain responsible for serotonin, this helps to govern the mood.
Emma uses modern medicine and traditional holistic practices to help her patients overcome the frustration of pain so they can return to what they love doing in life.
