How Does Acupuncture Work?
Disruptions of energy flow (Qi) among the Meridians are believed to be responsible for a disease. Acupuncture may correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points.
Numerous studies have documented that Acupuncture influences the Center and Peripheral nervous system. Evidence shows it releases endorphins from the brain which make acupuncture particularly effective in pain control.
Another theory suggests that acupuncture may also activate the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, resulting in a broad spectrum of systemic effects, including changes in the secretion of neurotransmitters and neuro-hormones and changes in the blood flow.
Acupuncture works with the body, strengthening and balancing energy. It improves circulation and allows the body to heal itself more quickly and more completely.
