        The second is that acupuncture stimulation may directly access the diseased regions of the body surface to reduce muscular tension or spasms, improve local circulation, and ease pain. Thus, quicker analgesic effects may be attained. The third is the bi-directional regulatory effects of acupuncture when treating functional illnesses even using a single acupoint.
