By what mechanism does acupuncture work and reduce pain symptoms?

The effectiveness of the Acupuncture method according to Western Medicine is based on the fact that the application of acupuncture causes the release of endogenous opioids through sensory fibers, and the transfer to the central nervous system of the stimuli created by the needles.

Acupuncture increases the amounts of endorphin-1, beta endorphin, enkephalin, serotonin and dopamine in the blood plasma and brain tissues.

These substances not only reduce pain but also have antidepressant and sedative properties and a positive effect even on the restoration of nerve function. Acupuncture also seems to have a direct effect on the hypothalamus (SNS) of the brain and the brainstem. In this way it finally has an effect on the sympathetic system and causes the release of cortisol, which has anti-inflammatory and analgesic action

Where the needles

are placed and why?

The needles used are special, without a lumen, very thin and painless, while they are placed:

  • Intramuscularly in areas that caused pain to the patient (muscle spasms & trigger points)
  • Along the tense muscle bundle


  • In the myotendinous area, in the grooves of the muscle or in the periosteum
  • Next to the Spine and more specifically near the aesthetic root of the neurotomy that leads to pain, as well as
  • In cutaneous areas on the borders of the areas that reflect the pain
