2. How acupuncture works
Acupuncture works by regulating the body's flow of energy and bodily fluids such as blood flow and yin and yang in the body.
The acupuncture points are located across the whole body, from head to toe. Each acupoint is connected to another by a channel called a meridian. By stimulating specific points with a acupuncture pin, it elicits a healing response within the body.
Scientific evidence suggests that it works by regulating neuromodulation, such as vagus nerve stimulation and has been used for inflammation control and uses body natural pain killers for pain treatment. It also stimulates the immune system to produce a healing response.

4. Is acupuncture painful?
Generally no, acupuncture isn't painful. The acupuncture pins are so fine, like the width of a hair. You can fit 20 acupuncture pins into 1 syringe!
Some people may feel the acupuncture pins go in, but it's not painful, you just notice it, like a little prick and others will feel nothing. The needle is inserted very quickly. Once the needle is in, you may feel a dull ache or a tingling sensation, which is normal or nothing at all.
