Acupuncture is a form of treatment in which sterile, disposable, and thin acupuncture needles are inserted through a person’s skin at certain points on the body to various depths.
Different needling techniques are used to treat many conditions and reduce symptoms of many illnesses by harmonizing and balancing the energy, increasing the blood flow, and enhancing the release of endorphins, neurotransmitters, and neurohormones.
This can, in turn, decrease/alleviate pain and inflammation and boost the body’s immune response.
