How Does Acupuncture Work?
Researchers don't fully understand how acupuncture might work, but there are numerous theories. One theory is that acupuncture works by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain-relieving chemicals.
Acupuncture is also said to influence the autonomic nervous system (which controls bodily functions) and the release of chemicals that regulate blood flow and pressure, reduce inflammation, and calm the brain.
Acupuncture is useful in addressing a variety of health conditions, including:
- Chronic pain (such as headaches, back pain, neck pain)
- Sinus congestion
- Stress and anxiety
- Weight loss
Some people use acupuncture to promote fertility. It is also used to quit smoking and as a component of the treatment for other addictions.
Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial acupuncture, is used to improve the appearance of skin.
Acupuncture can be beneficial in that:
- Performed correctly, it is safe.
- There are very few side effects.
- It can be effectively combined with other treatments.
- It can control some types of pain.
- It may help patients for whom pain medications are not suitable.
