Heal Your Body and Relieve Pain with Acupuncture
Many studies have documented acupuncture's effects on the body, and researchers have proposed several processes to explain the effectiveness of acupuncture, primarily on pain.
In general, acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system, which in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals either alter the experience of pain or trigger other chemicals that influence the body's self-regulating systems. These biochemical changes stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.
Many North Americans seek acupuncture treatment for relief of chronic pain, such as arthritis or low back pain for which it has great success in treating. Acupuncture also has expanded uses in other parts of the world. According to the World Health Organization Acupuncture may benefit people with the following conditions:
