Acupuncture

Acupuncture gives you natural help, for example, for headaches or muscle stiffness. The treatment is based on activating the body's own pain relief system.

Acupuncture in Rovaniemi

In Western countries, acupuncture is seen to relieve pain, because it acts through the nervous system. Acupuncture produces similar effects in the muscle as severe muscle contraction. Prolonged stimulation of muscle afferents (approximately 20 min) results in a decrease in sympathetic nervous system activity. Acupuncture increases blood flow to tissues, resulting in muscle relaxation.

In Finland, physiotherapists use acupuncture mainly to treat musculoskeletal disorders. Acupuncture relieves pain and relaxes muscles, which allows introduction of active exercises more quickly. Various headaches, such as migraines, have been treated by acupuncture with good results.
