Course Title:  Acupuncture effect on Key types of neurotransmitters 

By Dr. Min Lei, Provider No. 1430 


This course presents some previously proposed neurobiological mechanisms on how acupuncture may work in some clinical applications from a clinician's perspective. The proposed mechanisms included microinjury, increased local blood flow, facilitated healing, and analgesia for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Acupuncture may trigger a somatic autonomic reflex, thereby affecting gastric and cardiovascular functions. Acupuncture may also change the levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, thereby affecting the emotional state and craving. This mechanism may form the basis for the treatment of smoking cessation. By affecting other pain-modulating neurotransmitters such as met-enkephalin and substance P along the nociceptive pathway, acupuncture may relieve headaches. Acupuncture may affect the hypothalamus-pituitary axis and reduce the release of the luteinizing hormone in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome. 

According to Chinese medicine meridian theory and acupuncture mechanism, I will discuss the Acupuncture effect on key types of neurotransmitters and their related diseases: Acetylcholine, Dopamine, Endorphins, Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), Serotonin. Patient cases of many years from my clinic will be illustrated.
