Physically, stimulation of acupuncture points with needles results in the release of various chemicals in the skin and muscle tissue (including one called adenosine, the body's natural painkiller) and neurotransmitters (including endorphins, which help regulate hormone levels). Ultimately, effects of acupuncture on the body include improved sleep patterns, decreased inflammation (swelling), increased blood circulation, and improved immune system function.
