For thousands of years in China, acupuncture has been performed on animals and humans. According to modern research, acupoints are located in areas of the body with a high density of free nerve endings, mast cells, lymphatic vessels and small arterioles. Studies indicate that stimulation of acupoints induces the release of beta-endorphins, serotonin and other neurotransmitters.
Pain relief, promotion of tissue healing, immuno-regulation, anti-inflammatory effects, GI motility, and antifebrile effects are a few of the positive physiological effects studies show to be induced by acupuncture.
