How Does It Work?
From a western medical perspective, the insertion of hair-fine sterile and disposable needles into the subcutaneous layers of the skin can have profound influences on several regulatory systems. When used correctly, Acupuncture has neurophysiological affects that can release pain-reducing endorphins; affect the metabolism of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that affects both pain perception and mood; and improve circulation and immune function. Acupuncture specifically works to relieve nausea by releasing chemicals that control the vomiting centre in the brain as well as decreasing acid secretion and inhibiting abnormal gastric contractions.
So why are the needles inserted in specific places? According to Bruera and Portenoy’s Cancer Pain: Assessment and Management (2004), studies on acupoints have shown that many acupuncture points are also palpably detectable hollows or anatomical tissue planes, which in Western theory, may signify easily influenced zones of lymphaticoneurovascular bundles in the subcutaneous tissue. Peripheral endings of cranial and spinal nerves, and penetrations of neurovascular bundles through superficial fascia, have been cited as morphological findings of acupuncture points.
