How Acupuncture Works
In Traditional Chinese Medical science, the body possess energy referred to as Qi ( pronounced “chee”). Qi is influenced by the opposing forces of “Yin” and “Yang”. Chinese Medical Science shows that when Yin and Yang are balanced they will work together with the natural flow of Qi to help the body achieve and maintain optimum health.
Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points around the body that have direct effect on the Central Nervous System. Many studies have shown the release of crucial hormones and regulatory substances in the body that can have remarkable healing effects. These are the same natural substances that keep your body in good health but do not operate in a balanced way when one has an illness. Acupuncture therefore harnesses the natural internal power of the body, mind and spirit to restore good health.
