In general, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system and cause the release of neurochemical messenger molecules. The resulting biochemical changes influence the body’s homeostatic mechanisms. This promotes physical and emotional well-being. Stimulation of certain acupuncture points has been shown to affect areas of the brain that are known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress.
There is preliminary evidence to support acupuncture as an effective treatment for endometriosis.
It has been shown that acupuncture treatment may specifically be of benefit in people with endometriosis by:
- providing pain relief – by stimulating nerves located in muscles and other tissues, acupuncture leads to release of endorphins and other neurohumoral factors.
- reducing inflammation – by promoting release of vascular factors.
- regulating levels of prostaglandins .
Acupuncture is a tried and tested system which has been used in China and other eastern cultures for thousands of years. It can restore, promote and maintain good health.
