What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient treatment dating back to 1000s of years. One theory on how it works is that the needling process stimulates nerve fibers that then transmits signals to the spinal cord and brain which then releases hormones responsible for making us feel better. Some studies using brain images confirm that acupuncture increases pain threshold, which may explain why it produces long-term pain relief and improves overall health.
