Several research results showed that the insertion and manipulation of acupuncture needles
have both local and remote therapeutic effects via mechanical coupling of the needle to connective tissue which could generate a mechanical signal into cells, including cell secretion, modification of extracellular matrix, amplification and propagation of the signal along connective tissue planes, and modulation of afferent sensory input via changes in the connective tissue milieu, through pulling of collagen fibres during needle manipulation.
