Acupuncture treatments at the Copperfield Equine Therapy & Rehabilitation Centre.
Acupuncture treatment involves inserting sterile stainless steel acupuncture needles into specific point locations, this stimulates tiny nerve endings that carry impulses to the spinal cord and brain, and using electro-current to further improve stimulation and nerve function. It is commonly used to relieve musculoskeletal pain and treat a wide range of internal medical conditions. The purpose of an acupuncture treatment is to restore the patient to a state of balance or homeostasis. By influencing part of the brain called the hypothalamus, acupuncture can affect homeostatic regulatory mechanisms such as the control of blood pressure, pulse, respiration, intestinal motility, hormone secretion and white blood cell production
