Medical & Traditional Acupuncture Therapy
The technique of acupuncture, used for thousands of years to treat many conditions and illnesses, involves placing hair-thin needles in various pressure points called acupoints throughout the body. Stimulating these points is believed to promote the body's natural healing capabilities and enhance its function.
East Meets West
Two very different theories exist as to how acupuncture works. According to Chinese philosophy, the body contains two opposing forces: yin and yang. When these forces are in balance, the body is healthy. Energy, called qi (pronounced 'chee'), flows like rivers along pathways, or meridians, throughout the body. This constant flow of energy keeps the yin and yang balanced. However, the flow of energy can sometimes be blocked, like water getting stuck behind a dam. A disruption in the flow of energy can lead to illness.
Approximately 2,000 different acupuncture points lie along your body's meridians. The idea behind acupuncture is that stimulating these points with acupuncture needles or pressure relieves obstructions in the flow of energy, enabling your body to heal.

In the Western view, acupuncture therapy likely works by stimulating the central nervous system to release chemicals called neurotransmitters and hormones. These chemicals dull pain, boost the immune system, and regulate various body functions.
