TCM Physician Explains HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK


TCM Physician Explains HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK


According to research carried out by a researcher, when an acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin, it stimulates a sensory nerve which triggers electrical impulses to a spinal cord nerve. That nerve then sends signals to three places:
1.  To the Pituitary Gland
2.  To the Midbrain
3.  To the Nerve Cells

1. To the Pituitary Gland
The pituitary responds by delivering endorphins and anti-inflammatory chemicals into the bloodstream. It would travel through the bloodstream to the affected area and help relieve the swelling.
2. To the Midbrain
The midbrain responds by discharging neurotransmitters which block the body’s pain pathways, easing the discomfort.
3. To the Nerve Cells
The nerve cells respond by releasing endorphins which are neurochemicals that naturally mute pain in the body, again easing the discomfort.
