"Many studies have shown acupuncture can reduce stress."
Many studies have shown acupuncture can reduce stress, so scientists are exploring which biological mechanisms are stimulated by acupuncture and cause this reaction in the body. The feeling of stress in our bodies has a lot to do with the relationship between the hypothalamus of the brain, the pituitary gland and the adrenal glands. Each of those areas releases different hormones that interact and create the stress-response in our bodies.
In 2013, a study published by the Journal of Endocrinology speaking of changes in stressful situations had significantly decreased after the treatment of electroacupuncture. This biological response suggests acupuncture blocks the chronic stress-induced elevation of these hormones and might explain how acupuncture works to reduce stress in the body.
