Acupuncture FAQ

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms. It creates a signal that goes directly to the brain and communicates something is wrong and the brain responds by sending the appropriate healing responders through your fascia, nerves, hormones, and gases.
