Acupuncture points stimulate the nervous system to activate bioactive chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. Some of the physiological effects observed throughout the body include increased circulation, decreased inflammation, relief from pain and muscle spasms, and increased blood cell production, which stimulates the immune system.
The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
