Neural pathways pass close to the skin at more than 1,000 points on the body. Acupuncture is the art of applying precise stimulation to these points to induce a release of chemical neuro-peptides. These tiny proteins command the body’s self-regulating systems, activate the immune system, and dampen pain. Acupuncture activates these systems and forces the body into rapid self-healing mode.
