The body naturally responds when acupuncture points are stimulated, unblocking the obstructions at the dams and restoring regular flow through the meridians. From a medical perspective, acupuncture works by stimulating the body to release natural pain reducing hormones regulating the internal systems. Serotonin and endorphins promote natural healing by changing the experience of pain and reducing inflammation.
Acupuncture alleviates pain by increasing blood flow and circulation into areas of tension. This allows the nervous system to relax and the lymphatic system to drain, resulting in a strengthened immune system. Acupuncture treatment reestablishes harmony and creates balance in the body.
