Acupuncture is used to release stagnation and restore balance by provoking movement of blood and energy within the body. The goal is to stimulate the body's innate ability to heal itself. Needles are gently used to activate sensory receptors and nerve fibers which transmit impulses to the brain. The hypothalamus and the pituitary glands respond by releasing endorphins and neurotransmitters, the body's natural pain relieving hormones. It is estimated that endorphins are 200 times more potent than morphine. Endorphins also play a large role in the functioning and balance of the endocrine system. The hormones and neurotransmitters released relax the body and regulate serotonin
and dopamine levels which influence mental stability and energy levels. Acupuncture is also known to increase circulation and blood oxygen levels, Other Ailments - decrease blood pressure, elevate and balance immune function, and decrease inflammation. There are no limits to what conditions acupuncture can work with, however, it is important for the patient to be willing to recognize and shift particular lifestyle habits that have attributed to their present condition.
