Modern medicine believes that the body treats the puncture as any foreign matter in the body: It calls upon the immune system to respond with an increase in white blood cells which helps reduce inflammation in the body. No inflammation, no pain. Additionally, the brain also releases endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.
I feel acupuncture is a relaxing treatment and often reaches the nooks and crannies within joints and beneath the skin and muscle layers that may be harder to reach with other treatments. Circulation of blood to these deeper spots in the body are integral to healing stubborn & chronic problems.
