Studies have shown that with the insertion of acupuncture needles the body responds in certain ways. Once the needle penetrates the skin, the body responds by treating the needle as a foreign invader. This triggers the body’s injury response. Since the needles are so fine and sterile, and the skin is swabbed with alcohol there is no injury or risk of infection. The injury response will divert the blood flow to the needle and increase circulation to the affected area. Blood flow brings oxygen, nutrients, and the immune system and treats the problem locally.
