HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?

Acupuncture is a therapy which uses natural laws and energetic with the application of needles and pressure to specific points on the body. These points are grouped along specific pathways or meridians that cross the body.


   

As long as the energy flows freely through these pathways, health is maintained. When the flow of energy is blocked for any reason, there is disruption of health, resulting in pain and illness.

By stimulating appropriate acupuncture points along these meridians, the energy is released and regulated, and health is restored.

Studies indicate that acupuncture influences the central nervous system. Evidence shows it is particularly effective in pain control. Among a host of factors, acupuncture affects sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in the blood, the functioning of the gastrointestinal system and the activity of the endocrine system. Acupuncture works with the body, harmonizing and balancing energy. It improves circulation, releases endorphins to control pain, and allows the body to heal itself more quickly and more completely.
