How does acupuncture work?
In traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is used to stimulate points along meridians to correct any imbalance and achieve homeostasis. Western science uses acupuncture points to stimulate known neural structures, which induces the release of neurotransmitters and neurohormones that have widespread and measurable effects on pain.
