Acupuncture causes physical responses in nerve cells, the pituitary gland and parts of the brain. ┬áThese responses can cause the body to release beneficial proteins, hormones and brain chemicals that govern a number of body functions. ┬áBy stimulating physical responses, acupuncture positively affects blood pressure, body temperature, immune activity and causes the body’s natural painkillers to be released.
