How Acupuncture Works
In traditional Chinese medicine, there exists a meridian system through the human body and more than 360 acupoints are located at these meridians. Qi, or a stream of energy, flows through these meridians and acu-points to support tissue, muscles and organs.
When the Qi is obstructed in certain critical points, or acupoints, the function of tissue, muscles and organs will be impaired. By inserting acupuncture needles into acupoints, it helps the release of Qi flow and corrects Qi imbalances at the organ level to improve your energy and internal processing.
