How Acupuncture Works to Relieve Pain

Acupuncture works on the nervous system, which controls all the physiological functions in the body.

It calms the pain loop in the brain which is so common in chronic pain.  Once this pain loop is broken, the body (via brain an nervous system) creates a vasiodilative effect to the affected area, bringing in blood flow.  The increased blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients as well as carries away metabolic toxic waste from the area.

Each acupuncture channels controls a set of vessels associated with a group of muscles and tissues.  For example the kidney channel controls the spinus erectus muscles and deeper disks and bones, so needling that channel (usually near the foot) brings immediate relief to the low back pain.
