Specific neurotransmitters such as serotonin and melatonin, have been shown to be impacted by Acupuncture, which assist in inducing sleep onset and increasing overall sleep time.

Acupuncture can play an important role in helping treat the major symptoms of impaired digestion, by impacting the nervous system impulses that relay messages to our gut. From affecting gastric secretion to peristalsis, acupuncture can influence the severity of symptoms and conditions.
