How it works o acupuncture ;

Acupuncture as a therapeutic technique is based on the painless placement of needles in specific areas of the skin which are connected to "meridian" energy channels.. Any disease is considered an energy disorder between yin "parasympathetic" and yang "sympathetic". Their balance alone brings health. Acupuncture recognizes the body as an open system of continuous energy exchange and aims to restore energy by stimulating anatomical acupuncture points.. The skin and its aesthetics reveal the close relationship of the skin with the nerve tissue. So., the skin where the acupuncture is performed transmits the stimuli to special organs, tissues, brain. The pain is discharged through electrical stimulation of acupuncture points, the best tissue perfusion, the secretion of endorphin-serotonin neurotransmitters, known as wellness hormones.
