Coming from the Traditional Chinese Medicine healthcare system, acupuncture is a
common modality used to create a neuroendocrine response. Your neuroendocrine
system refers to the aspects of the brain and body that regulate chemicals responsible
for hormone balance, mood, immune strength, digestive health, stress, inflammation,
and more. Acupuncture is the use of hair-thin, stainless steel needles or pins that are
inserted into the body along specific channels. The channels are associated with
internal organs like the liver, spleen, and heart, and with specific tissues like blood
vessels, lymphatic vessels, and fascia. The needles interact with the flow through these
channels, and stimulates an electrochemical change which affects the physiology of the
associated organs and tissues.
Acupuncture alone has been shown to have efficacious results in treating conditions
such as depression, anxiety disorders, insomnia, pain, gas and bloating, IBS, Crohn’s
disease, skin conditions, sciatica, arthritis, headaches, menstrual issues, weight
gain/loss, and addictions.
