Biomedical Acupuncture (BMA) promotes healing in soft tissue by relieving muscle tension and inflammation via mechanical and biochemical functions.
Mechanical: BMA needles create microscopic holes, allowing blood to flow and carry oxygen to tense muscles. Oxygen helps muscles relax, relieving pressure and pain. BMA stimulates healing by prompting the body to generate healthy tissue.
Biochemical: BMA triggers the release of endorphins and other natural biochemicals into the bloodstream. Biochemicals promote the body’s natural healing response locally and systemically to reduce pain and inflammation, decrease stress, enhance mood, and regulate hormone and immune systems.
