Applying acupuncture needlesHow Does It Work?

An ancient Chinese practice, acupuncture works with the natural energy, known as Qi, flowing through the body. It’s believed that illness results from an imbalance of this energy in the body.

With 350 acupuncture points along the meridians, or energy pathways, these flows can be easily accessed. Inserting thin, hair-like needles in the appropriate combination at these points allows the energy flow to be brought back into proper balance. The body’s natural healing abilities can now kick in.

Western practitioners see acupuncture points as places where nerves, muscles and connective tissue can be stimulated. This stimulation increases blood flow and triggers the body’s natural painkillers.
