How Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is a 3000 years old technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It was originated in China, and, widely spread in Korea, Taiwan, Japan.

In 1997, The U.S. NIH(National Institutes of Health) documented and published acupuncture’s safety and efficacy for treating a wide range of conditions.

How does Acupuncture work?

In the past, the old Chinese doctors believed that acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural  self-healing process by stimulation specific acu-points.

Recently, many Asian and Western scientists have been trying to study the mechanism of acupuncture for years and have come up with several hypotheses.

First, Acupuncture works through neuro-hormonal pathways.

When the practitioner put the needle through specific points in the body and stimulates the nerve.

The nerve sends signals to the brain, and brain releases neural-hormones such as Endorphins, Endogenous Morphine, Enkephalin, Beta-Endorphin. By doing that the patient may feel happy and relaxed so that the patient feels less pain.

Second, Acupuncture works by reducing pro-inflammatory markers, or proteins, in the body.

Some human and animal studies suggest that by doing acupuncture, you can significantly decrease these pro-inflammatory markers-including TNF and IL-1β, which cut inflammation and pain.


Third, Acupuncture regenerates peripheral nerves.

Acupuncture can be used  to treat nerve damages such as peripheral nerve damages and chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy, a condition that cause numbness and weakness in the feet and hands.

Inserting needles in numb and weak region, it stimulates the brain to release nerve growth factors, then it helps to regenerate the peripheral nerves.
