Acupuncture and Sciatica

Acupuncture is an ancient technique that has very real modern-day effects. Through the stimulation of certain points on the body, acupuncture induces the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkilling chemicals. Acupuncture also enhances serotonin levels; serotonin improves mood and relieves stress while helping to interrupt pain signals. By improving circulation, acupuncture also assists in the healing process.
