In acupuncture, extremely thin and sterile needles are inserted through the skin at certain areas of the body. Some of these areas are thought to be places near nerves, in muscles or connective tissue which boost the activity of the body's natural painkillers, stimulate endorphins, increased blood flow and stimulate the body's immune response.
Acupuncture stimulates these activities and your body continues them.
