Acupuncture induces a strong anti-inflammatory response in the body and increases blood flow to compromised tissues, muscles, joints, and organs. Studies show that the body also releases endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine in response to acupuncture. This accounts for the relaxation and stress-relieving effects of the treatments. In essence, acupuncture stimulates the body to heal itself.
