How is Acupuncture Used?
Acupuncture is an integrative therapy used to restore the flow and balance of energy in the body by stimulating condensed areas of nerves and blood vessels, known as neurovascular bundles. This stimulation, produced by placing very fine needles at these areas, causes mild inflammation, which triggers nerve regeneration and the release of healing and pain-relieving chemicals, including endorphins.
