The ancient Chinese discovered 173 acupuncture points (acupoints) in animals. Acupoints are located in areas where there is a high density of free nerve endings, mast cells, small arterioles and lymphatic vessels, according to modern research. Numerous studies have shown that stimulating these points induces the release of serotonin, beta-endorphin and other neurotransmitters, and therefore helps with pain relief.

Methods: Acupoints can be stimulated in several ways, including dry-needling, aqu-acupuncture, electro-stimulation (as shown), and moxibustion.

Goals: It allows the return of homeostasis and the restoration of  the flow of Qi (the life force or vital energy).

Safety: It is very safe when administered by a qualified practitioner.
