ACUPUNCTURE POINTS are areas in the skin where these rivers of energy come closest to the body surface. These points are opened and closed to adjust the circulation in the channels, and release toxins from them . These points are also storage areas for cortisone, testosterone, estrogen, and a number of hormones. When these points are stimulated with acupuncture, hormones are released and the acupuncture points decrease in size. Very tiny solid stainless steel needles are inserted into these points to accomplish this.
Most patients only feel a sensation of a small pinch, followed by a comfortable warmness. Relief of symptoms and increased energy occur within 48 hours after treatment. Needles are left in for 20-30 minutes.
