Yours in Health,

Hello & thank you for your question! Acupuncture helps regulate the inflammatory process, which will thereby decrease pain and inflammation within the body. This is why acupuncture has been proven to be beneficial for different types of pain as well as conditions such as arthritis, allergies, gastritis, fibromyalgia, and more (based on the World Health Organization).
Yes, needles trigger our brains to release multiple chemicals with anti-inflammatory agents to reduce inflammation/pain. It can produce instant results if the pain is acute. Thank you for your great question.
