How Does Acupuncture Work And How Can It Affect The Body?

Acupuncture points are believed to help stimulate the central nervous system which can regulate the mental and physical response in your body. Chemical changes may be triggered, including a release of endorphins which can result in a natural healing and muscle strengthening.

Many studies conducted by the National Institutes of Health have shown that acupuncture is an effective treatment alone or in either combination with other therapies to treat the following:

  • Addiction

  • Asthma

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Dental pain after surgery

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Headaches

  • Low back pain

  • Menstrual cramps

  • Myofascial pain

  • Nausea caused by surgical anesthesia and cancer chemotherapy

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Tennis elbow

It may also help with stroke rehabilitation.
