Scientists prove how Acupuncture works to reduce Stress

Acupuncture works by blocking the release of stress hormones, from the brain, according to a scientific study.

Professor Ladan Eshkevari, an associate professor of nursing at Georgetown University in America, designed studies to test the effects of Acupuncture. They showed that the Chinese Therapy reduced levels of hormones secreted by pathways involved in the stress response.

Prof Eshkevari said the study, published in the Journal of Endocrinology, added to a growing body of evidence on Acupuncture’s protective effect against stress.
