How does acupuncture work for pain relief

Acupuncture treatment for pain relief is the most effective and natural treatment in managing all kinds of pain. The treatment improves back pain, reduce inflammation in arthritis and speed up recover in sports injury.

Studies have shown that acupuncture at acupoints can promote the release of bioactive chemicals such as 5-hydroxytryptamine, endorphins, dynorphins, etc. from many parts of the central nervous system. These substances can accelerate the elimination of inflammatory and pain-causing substances, thereby producing analgesic effect.

In clinical studies, most of the patients treated with acupuncture were able to stop taking drugs for pain relief or to take smaller doses.

According to a new study by researchers at Harvard University, a few seconds after the needle was pierced to the corresponding acupuncture point, the MRI scan showed that the blood flow in a specific area of ​​the subject’s brain gradually decreased. The researchers explained, When the blood is reduced, the brain will not “work hard”, so acupuncture can calm certain areas of the brain to achieve analgesic effects.
