The Details – How it works
There are a number of conventional medical theories on how acupuncture work. Yes! Acupuncture has been scientifically proven to work. We know that by inserting needles into painful locations in the body, endorphin, your body’s natural morphine, is released. This explains how acupuncture is able to provide pain relief.
By inserting needles into tight or injured muscles, we are also able to relax the fascia material wrapping around these damaged muscles tissues. This allows circulation to return fully to the muscles and begin tissue repair.
It also happens that many acupuncture points fall near superficial nerve tissues. As acupuncture needles are inserted, nerve tissues are stimulated to perform their normal functions.
Chinese Medical theory see it differently. Blockages in the Meridian energy channels is believed to be the cause of disease condition. These energy channels runs throughout all living bodies. So when acupuncture needles are correctly inserted into specific locations, the blockages are removed, the meridian energy channel becomes free-flowing again, and disease is eradicated.
