How does acupuncture actually work?
Well, our bodies have built-in “reset buttons” located throughout different parts. Acupuncture can stimulate these points, triggering a somatic autonomic reflex that influences various bodily functions.
Acupuncture has the ability to modulate neurotransmitter levels, such as serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters play a significant role in our emotional state and cravings. This is why acupuncture is effective for individuals who want to quit smoking, drinking, or overcome substance abuse.
By influencing other pain-modulating neurotransmitters like Met-enkephalin and Substance P along the nociceptive pathway, acupuncture can provide relief from headaches.
Furthermore, acupuncture can also reduce inflammation by acting as an antihistamine and promoting the production of phagocytes, which help combat inflammation more effectively.
Huato acupuncture points, also known as Paravertebral points, have an impact on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
Acupuncture has been extensively studied, with hundreds of clinical studies demonstrating its effectiveness in treating various conditions. These include musculoskeletal problems (such as back and neck pain), nausea, migraine headaches, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility.
The number and frequency of acupuncture treatments vary from person to person. Some individuals experience significant relief after just a couple of sessions. For complex or long-standing chronic conditions, it is often recommended to have one to two treatments per week for a month. Acute problems typically require fewer visits, usually totaling around eight to ten sessions.
During your initial visit, your acupuncturist will discuss an individualized treatment plan that includes the expected number of treatments.
