What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of complementary medicine in which fine needles are inserted in the skin at specific points along what are considered to be lines of energy (meridians), used in the treatment of various physical and mental conditions.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupoints are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. In turn, it releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes can stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities, promoting physical and mental health.
How Is Acupuncture Treatment Done?
Hair-thin needles are used during acupuncture. Most people claim to only experience minor discomfort as the needle is inserted. A pressure or ache is felt after the needle has been inserted to the proper depth. During the procedure, needles may be heated or subjected to a gentle electric current.
Some people report acupuncture makes them feel energized. Others say they feel relaxed.
