How does acupuncture work?

By stimulating specific points on the body (known as acupoints) acupuncture promotes the body’s self-healing process, which helps to improve the natural functions of the body. These acupoints are located along channels of energy, known as meridians, that connect our organs.

By stimulating specific points on the body (known as acupoints) acupuncture promotes the body’s self-healing process, which helps to improve the natural functions of the body. These acupoints are located along channels of energy, known as meridians, that connect our organs. Illness arises when the body’s natural energy (known as qi) becomes unbalanced or blocked. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help to balance and unblock the meridians, which allows the energy to flow freely and naturally. When the qi is allowed to flow freely, the body becomes balanced and you feel healthier and happier.
