Acupuncture works by stimulating the circulation, connective tissue, and lymphatic system. Acupuncture releases endorphins (feel good chemicals) in the brain, balances hormones and the immune system, and stimulates pain relieving nerve fibers. "Qi" stimulation is what allows the acupuncture to help balance your body.
