Acupuncture is a holistic therapeutic system that originated in China. This therapy is based on a millennial tradition used for treating patients through centuries and on Yin and Yang, the concept of balance of vital energy. When the energy is in balance, the person is considered healthy. However, an imbalance of the flow of this vital energy is the cause of diseases and pain. Acupuncture stimulates and increases the body's self-healing abilities. It aims to improve health and relieve various types of pain. Science is beginning to show that acupuncture stimulates different regions of the nervous system, leading to the release of natural analgesic substances, such as endorphins and enkephalins. Furthermore, acupuncture helps regulate the flow of neurotransmitters in the brain, harmonizing the way the brain sends and receives information from diseased tissues or organs.
