The world health organization currently recognizes acupuncture treatment for more than 30 diseases. The key role of the acupuncture is to relieve pain. In the 16th century, Chinese specialists believed that diseases occur due to an imbalance of energy in the whole body. In acupuncture therapy, stainless steel and disposable needles are utilized to stimulate energy-carrying channels in 14 major meridians of the body, to overcome the disease condition or resist by correcting the imbalances.
This therapy also used to decrease the pain by increasing
the endorphins discharge that blocks pain. There are several acu-points near the nerves. These nerves cause a feeling of fullness and the dull ache in the muscles, in the stimulated from. Then these stimulated muscles deliver a message to central nervous system (Spinal cord and brain), causing the discharge of endorphins. Endorphin is a morphine-like chemical which produced during the time of stress and pain.
