What is Acupuncture Care?

Acupuncture works through neurohormonal pathways. A fine needle passes through specific points in the body and stimulates the nerve. The nerve actually sends signals to the brain, and the brain releases neural hormones. Acupuncture also works by reducing pro-inflammatory markers, or proteins. The needle stimulates the brain to secrete some nerve growth factor, and then that helps the nerve to regenerate. Acupuncture can be used to treat nerve damage, such as chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy, a condition that often causes numbness or weakness in the feet and hands.
