How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is a remarkable technique that enhances and regulates your body's own restorative abilities. It does so by stimulating specific points in the body with very fine sterile needles. These points influence and connect to different muscle groups, nerve pathways, and organ systems. Therefore, one can achieve a desired effect on a part of the anatomy or physiology by working on specific acupuncture meridians. Scientific research has shown that Acupuncture effectively improves circulation, reduces inflammation, relaxes the nervous system, boosts the immune system, and stimulates secretion of beta endorphins from the hypothalamus. This translates into less pain, more energy, better sleep, and increased efficiency and mental focus.
