New Research On Benefits of Acupuncture

The mainstream media has reported extensively recent evidence which supports the beneficial effect of acupuncture on painful conditions.  The reports suggests that acupuncture stimulates the release of a naturally occurring chemical within the body called adenosine, which is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and also helps to regulate sleep and ease pain.  The study was carried out at the University of Rochester in New York, USA.

This study adds to the growing evidence for the benefits of acupuncture in painful conditions such as migraine, neck, back, hip, knee and elbow pain and other painful condition such as painful periods.

At Lotus Healthcare, acupuncture is provided by Dr Mayank R Shah who is a medical acupuncturist and a member of The British Medical Acupuncture Society.  Following a detailed assessment, appropriate treatment options including acupuncture are offered.
