How does acupuncture work?
Updated: Feb 9
Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles through the skin at specific points(acupoints) on various parts of our body.
Acupuncture helps in pain relief by stimulating the pain inhibitory nerve fibers and promotes blood circulations and helps the body to be balanced.
The acupoints will typically be identified beforehand by an acupuncturist who has experience with this technique; he/she can identify which nerves are being stimulated based off where you're experiencing pain from.
