The science behind acupuncture. 

According to Chinese Medicine, acupuncture unblocks stagnated Qi, vital energy, in the body’s meridians and regulates its flow. When the flow of Qi is disrupted or blocked, it is thought to lead to health problems. Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along these meridians to restore the balanced flow of Qi.

But have you ever wondered how science explains its functionality? 

Modern research presents several theories. One of them is that acupuncture stimulates the release of various neurotransmitters and hormones in the body, such as endorphins, which are natural painkillers. This release can help reduce pain and improve mood. According to the gate control theory of pain, acupuncture may stimulate large sensory nerve fibres that can block the transmission of pain signals to the brain. By activating these nerve fibres, acupuncture may reduce the perception of pain. Some studies suggest that acupuncture may have anti-inflammatory effects. By reducing inflammation in the body, acupuncture could alleviate pain and improve various health conditions. Moreover, acupuncture needles may stimulate the body's connective tissues. This stimulation could trigger a local healing response and contribute to pain relief. Another study suggests that acupuncture influences the autonomic nervous system, which controls various bodily functions such as heart rate, digestion, and respiration. It may help regulate these functions, promoting overall health and well-being. There is also a placebo effect theory, where the act of receiving acupuncture treatment and the belief that it will work can trigger a psychological response that may lead to the perception of symptom improvement or actual improvement. 

However, despite the above theories, the receiver's feedback should matter the most. It is fair to state that, in the past three thousand years of acupuncture's existence, countless positive outcomes and life-changing experiences have occurred.
