How acupuncture works
In Chinese and alternative medicine, acupuncture is considered an integral part of treatment. Acupuncture is in demand because it is a non-hazardous non-medicinal method of treating neurological diseases, as well as an effective means of combating bad habits: tobacco smoking, obesity. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years: it relieves acute pain syndromes and helps fight chronic diseases and habits.

The principle of needle therapy is based on the stimulation of bioactive points located on the human body on certain lines called meridians. Each meridian is responsible for a particular organ. There are a total of 14 known points, 12 of which are paired. Stimulation of these points allows you to achieve an effect on an internal or external organ. Depending on the indication, it may have a sedative or tonic effect, which results in the desired activity of the organ (decrease or increase), which brings the function back to normal.
The possibilities of acupuncture are multifaceted: it has anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, anti-tumor, and anti-edema effects. The doctor can also use it:
- Restore the energy balance in the body.
- Normalize hormonal background: regulate the functioning of the pituitary gland and hypothalamus.
- Have an analgesic effect by stimulating the production of endorphin and dopamine.
- Cure neurotic disorders and affect the nervous system.
Acupuncture is an effective method of treatment of more than 60 diseases, which is officially confirmed by the World Health Organization. The effectiveness of acupuncture is proved by objective data of MRI, tests and other investigations.

The scheme of acupuncture and the number of needles are also individually selected, which varies from 6-40 pieces for one session.
