Acupuncture may cause responses in nerves, the pituitary gland, and parts of the brain, which in turn can cause the body to release hormones, brain chemicals and proteins that control a number of bodily functions. It also affects blood pressure, the immune system, and body temperature. Acupuncture can also triggers the release of endorphins (natural painkillers) and enkephalins. Follow Dr. Stephen B.
