According to the Chinese, there is a network of energy that flows through the body and connects these points through different channels called "meridians". These channels are related to specific internal functions and any imbalance in the flow of energy creates a disease process. The applications of acupuncture can correct this imbalance. Many physician scientists have shown that acupuncture treatment can cause the release of endorphins, natural pain-relieving substances found in the brain and the spinal cord. This may explain how acupuncture is helpful in relieving pain.
Of the several unconventional therapies being practiced in the United States, acupuncture appears to be growing at a rapid rate. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates that 9-12 million acupuncture treatments are now being performed annually by United States practitioners.
Supporters of acupuncture assert that this remedy is more accessible, safer and less expensive than conventional therapy and provides a surgery-free approach to alleviating suffering related to chronic health problems.
