How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture works on the vast network of electro-magnetic fields and pathways of the human body. Your acupuncturist inserts very thin needles through the skin. By stimulating these acu-points found at specific areas along well-defined pathways of the body, physiological effects occur, which essentially stimulates the bodys natural healing abilities. Stimulation of the appropriate acu-points through treatments helps to restore sufficient, continuous, and even flow of Qi (vital energy) and other nutrients throughout the body.

Modern research shows that acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, serotonins and other neuro-chemicals that promote circulation and hormonal balance as well as reduce pain and inflammation. The aim of acupuncture is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms but to treat the underlying cause and improve the quality of life. Patients may experience a sense of well-being and relaxation during treatment. Acupuncture is an extremely safe treatment strategy, and has proven effective in treating hundreds of different ailments. One of the greatest advantages of acupuncture is the absence of undesirable side effects.
