How Does Acupuncture work?

According to Dr. Zhao, acupuncture can increase the endophine substance, improve the neurotransmitters, and balance the hormone level. But more than that, acupuncture can increase the immune function. How does it do this? Acupuncture uses physical stimulation to induce chemical reactions that can help the body heal in various ways: this is the essence of acupuncture. In this way acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of conditions (see services).
