What Is Acupuncture and How Does it Work?
How acupuncture works:
Good health is not just the absence of pain or disease. According to Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s life force energy, known as qi, moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin, known as meridians. The flow of qi can be disturbed by any number of factors. These include emotional states such as anxiety, anger, or grief, as well as poor nutrition, hereditary factors, infections or trauma. When qi is unbalanced, illness may result. Acupuncture works to maintain the body’s equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of wellbeing; physical, mental, and emotional.
