Acupuncture & Inflammation Relief
Acupuncture treats inflammation by directly stimulating the release of prostaglandins, anti-inflammatory cytokines, Substance P, white blood cells, and natural killer cells. When these are secreted in local tissues where the needles are placed they act as local healers and mediators for damaged and inflamed tissues. This all happens naturally with no added chemicals. Our bodies’ already protect themselves, acupuncture simply enhances these self healing capabilities and focuses them into the regions that need it most.
