I was recently asked, “How exactly do you think acupuncture works?”
Here's what I said, “I try to engage three or more well-known effects of acupuncture. Put needles in tight muscle, the muscle will relax. And it is less likely to get tight or spasm again. Acupuncture needles have an anti-inflammatory effect. There is a zone around each needle in which inflammation is reduced. This is great for injuries like sprains. Lastly, acupuncture changes nervous system's transmission and interpretation of pain signals. It blocks the urgent pain and keeps it from going up your spine.”
