Acupuncture Pocket Guide
Acupuncture is a practice in which a trained specialist called an acupuncturist stimulates, usually with a needle, a specific point on the skin called acupoints. Acupoints spark the brain and nervous system causing chemicals like endorphins to be released in the body. These chemicals may directly impact how a person experiences pain, and therefore helps the body and its internal organs to reset. The purpose of acupuncture is to rebalance or correct the body’s energy flow, relieve pain and stimulate the body to heal itself.
