Acupuncture in Arizona
Acupuncture encourages the body to promote natural healing and improve function. This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless steel needles (that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located on the surface of the skin which in turn creates a stimulation of biochemical and physiological systems in the body. There is a release of specific neurotransmitters that activate the immune system, and also release of endorphins such as norepinephrine, acetylcholine and opioids that can positively affect the nervous system. These changes in body chemistry result in reduced pain and inflammation, increased blood circulation, and pronounced relaxation of the mind, body and spirit.
