Acupuncture is one of the oldest medical therapies and records of its use date back as far as written language itself. Further development of acupuncture can be found in the rich history of East Asian Medical practices, most notably, in Chinese medicine. From antiquity to modern medicine, acupuncture has and continues to play an important role in managing a wide variety of illnesses and their symptoms: from headaches and pain, to chronic sinus allergies and digestive issues, acupuncture can help.
A lot can be said about how and why acupuncture works, and there are many different ways to understand it. Simply put, acupuncture uses fine needles to regulate the channels of the body. These channels are the fluid-filled spaces between the structures of the body where metabolic reactions occur. In the presence of disease or pain, these spaces become blocked and stagnant with excessive waste metabolites or deficient in nutritive fluids. Acupuncture works by normalizing these spaces so the body can maintain proper homeostasis. Acupuncture helps to regulate the autonomic nervous system (fight or flight), promotes unhindered blood circulation, reduces inflammation, and stimulates the release of endorphins and other natural pain killers.
