Tampa's Expert in Acupuncture
Whether you want to get out of pain, reduce stress, improve fertility or tackle an autoimmune condition, Neurofunctional acupuncture can help.
Neurofunctional acupuncture is based on the understanding that the nervous system is responsible for controlling all of the body’s functions, including movement, sensation, and pain. When the nervous system is not functioning properly, it can lead to a variety of problems, including pain, muscle weakness, and fatigue and functional disorders.
Neurofunctional acupuncture works by stimulating the nerves to improve their function. This can help to reduce pain, improve muscle strength and coordination, and accelerate recovery from injury and improve function of bodily systems.

How Does Neurofunctional Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture has many mechanisms that target your nervous, immune, muscular, and cardiovascular systems.
One explanation for how acupuncture works is by stimulating parts of the brain that control the release of endorphins, or pain relieving chemicals.
Another explanation is that is helps promote blood circulation.
Another explanation is acupuncture regulates our immune system, which in turn helps reduce inflammation and promotes a better state of overall health.
All of the acupuncture points are around neuro-vascular junctions – this means they are around nerves and blood vessels. The acupuncture pin provides a direct signal to these body systems and that signal is relayed to your nervous system and brain.
