Event description

Description

Many factors can contribute to pelvic pain: infection, inflammation, scar tissue and muscle spasm. When there is pain, a signal is transmitted to the brain, and the brain will release many kinds of chemicals to cope with the pain, such as endorphin, dopamine and serotonin. But if the pain lasts too long, the perception of the pain in the brain will be changed. The pain signal can become stronger when certain brain areas become hypersensitive with chronic pain. Chronic pain can also create chronic stress, depleting our feeling good hormones: endorphins, serotonin and dopamine. Chronic stress can also lower the cortisol level, making the body prone to autoimmune disease and allergy. It is very critical to treat the root cause of the pain and get rid of pain as soon as possible. Acupuncture can not only relive the pain by increasing your own pain killer, such as endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, but also can reduce the inflammation by improving the circulation and relax the muscles. Furthermore, acupuncture can strengthen the adrenal gland and immune function, so more anti-inflammatory chemicals such as cortisol can be produced by the adrenal gland. Acupuncture can also reset the muscle tone instantly and balance different pelvic muscles and tendons, so the nerves will not be irritated. In this presentation, Li Zheng will show patients how to use self-healing acupressure on certain points to relax the pelvic muscles and reduce the stress and pain.
