How acupuncture relieves pain is unclear to Western science. Evidence points to two mechanisms; a nerve block, and a release of pain-killing chemicals (endorphin).

First, the "gate theory" suggests that pain impulses are blocked from reaching the spinal cord or brain at various nerve connections or "gates" to these areas. This would be similar to how reflexes operate. For example, when you stub your toe, the nerve impulse goes from your toe to your spine. Then it divides, causing a nerve impulse to the muscles in your leg to pull your toe back.

Another impulse proceeds to your brain, causing you to feel the pain, and allowing your conscious mind to recover your sense of dignity at having just looked awkward. When the impulse reaches your brain, it stimulates the release of narcotic-like substances called endorphin ("endogenous morphine"), which reduce pain systemically. What seems to be the case, is that acupuncture causes the body to react as if it has been injured, but without actually causing the pain that would accompany such an injury.



In the United States, an estimated 3.1 million U.S. adults and 150,000 children were treated with acupuncture in 2007, according to a survey by the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.



Our purpose is to help as many people as possible become healthy....naturally. That purpose moves us beyond the goal of relieving pain and suffering to the vision of promoting and maintaining optimal health and well-being through the use of Traditional Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture and other methods of natural healing.
