Acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system and causes multiple biological responses. These biological responses can occur at the site of the application as well as at a distance. From a modern perspective, injuries and disease are resolved by a complex set of responses, and these responses are coordinated by many signaling systems. When there is a blockage within a signaling system there is a breakdown of the immune system. Acupuncture frees the blockage, enabling the release and travel of biochemicals and other organisms that offer a healing response.

Because acupuncture treats the whole person, it offers something for nearly every condition. In many cases, acupuncture holds the ability to bring about a complete cure, in other cases, it is an effective strategy. Acupuncturists routinely and successfully treat people whose condition is related to the immune system. For example, conditions such as allergies, back pain, fatigue and indigestion are successfully treated through acupuncture.

Acupuncture is an effective way to treat a wide range of acute as well as chronic ailments. It provides drug-free pain relief and treats the underlying cause of the condition and the symptoms. This holistic approach to the treatment of disease and illness links the body, mind and emotions.
