Recent research has elucidated some of the physiologic and biochemical bases of acupuncture. Acupuncture stimulation has been shown to release central nervous system endorphins and spinal cord dynorphins, explaining part of its mechanism of action. It has also been shown to promote the release of the chemical that activates the adrenal glands (adrenocorticotrophic hormone or ACTH), affect chemicals that are known to be involved in mood and pain perception (serotonin, GABA catecholamines, dopamine, etc), and influence one of the body’s pain-generating messengers (substance P). While its effects have traditionally been explained in terms of energy flow dynamics (Qi or Chi), science has shown that acupuncture may work at least partly by directly affecting the function of the nervous system (Han, 986; Kaptchuk, 2002; Wu, 1999).
