Acupuncture is rooted in a history that spans more than 2,000 years and restores the natural balance and smooth flow of energy throughout the body. From a modern Western medical perspective, needling acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release biochemicals such as endorphins, immune system cells, and neurotransmitters, in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. In addition to alleviating pain, these chemicals can influence the internal regulating system of the body and affect involuntary bodily functions such as blood flow, immune reactions, body temperature, and digestion. By stimulating the nervous system and influencing these bodily functions, acupuncture can help the body heal itself naturally.
