What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is based on the meridian theory, in which Qi, or vital energy, is believed to travel through precise pathways or meridians to nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up the flow in one part of the body and restricts it in others. There are twelve major meridians, each connected to a particular organ, plus eight special or "extra" meridians. The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupoints; the acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the flow through the Warm, or "what is a reckless raise what is falling or lowers what is rising."
Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body's internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.
