How dose Acupuncture works ?

According to Chinese medicine theory, vital life energy circulates through the human body by way of channels called meridians. When this flow of energy is smooth and unobstructed, good health is the result. But, if this flow is deficient or in excess, ailments and diseases will occur.

For example, a strained back may be due to blocked energy flow in the bladder channel which runs down either side of the spine. Similarly, if the balance of energy flow in the stomach is disturbed, either of the following may occur: vomiting will result if there is an excess of energy flow, while deficiency of energy over a long time may predispose one to a stomach ulcer.

The aim of acupuncture is to correct imbalances of energy through the insertion of needles into specific points along the meridian so as to assist the body's own recuperative powers and adjust or rebalance the energy flow to help people regain health.

Modem scientists cannot explain how this ancient healing therapy works; they simply know that it does. Recent research has shown that acupuncture produces beneficial changes in the bodies, such as improving immune system functions and hormonal activities, as well as acting as natural painkillers and anti-inflammatory agents.
