How Does Western Medicine Explain Acupuncture?

How Does Western Medicine Explain Acupuncture?

Western medicine does not subscribe to Traditional Chinese Medicine’s explanation of meridians and qi.

How do they understand the effectiveness of acupuncture? Western medicine has found that acupuncture triggers the release of endorphins and serotonin in the brain and central nervous system. Endorphins and serotonin are natural chemicals that regulate pleasure and mood. Enhanced levels of these natural chemicals can have a strong affect on a persons mood and provide pain relief.
