How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture aims at causing a healing reaction in the body itself. Acupuncture is not to treat diseases directly but helps the body itself cure the disease by acupuncture stimulation inducing healing response. In other words, it makes natural healing system work.

The human body's natural healing system starts to work when parasympathetic nerve of the autonomic nervous system is stimulated. The body is under the control of the parasympathetic nerve, which promotes relaxation response and healing response as well. The human body self-diagnoses and heals itself with the help of acupuncture. Acupuncture helps get back into balance in the end.

Acupuncture treatment makes qi (vital energy) smooth. By controlling the energy flow it has the positive effect of adjusting the balance among the internal organs and curing the diseases of the body as well.

Acupuncture is highly effective in relieving pain in a way to stimulate the release of endorphins from the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. They are 1000 times stronger than morphine. The endorphins are neurotransmitters that transmit electrical signals throughout the nervous system.

Acupuncture assists in the contraction or expansion of the blood vessels and facilitates the blood circulation. It helps prevent or treat vascular disease. Acupuncture has a significant impact on the metabolism. It helps urination, moves the bowels and promotes or inhibits perspiration. Accordingly, it serves weight loss or gain depending on body constitution.
