The positive effects of acupuncture can be attributed to various mechanisms: these include the release of substances naturally formed by the body (endorphins) and neural transmitter substances (neurotransmitters). These substances cause pain relief and emotional relaxation.
Acupuncture is not only a method to obtain quick pain relief, but also has a relaxing effect, supports the immune system and activates the body’s motor functions. However, acupuncture can only heal what is ill, but not what has been destroyed. There are practically no unwanted side effects when acupuncture is performed correctly, however, in rare cases it may cause malaise, nausea, headache or local pain.
