How does Acupuncture work?

  • Acupuncture allows Qi (chi) to flow to areas where it is deficient and away from areas where it is in excess.

  • It regulates and restores the energetic balance of the body.

  • Acupuncture also stimulates the body to produce its own pain relievers, called endorphins, which help to block pathways that relay messages from the body to the brain. This results in the relief of pain, general relaxation, and the restoration of the body's own internal regulation systems.

An even distribution of Qi will maintain health and allow you to reach a state of wellness, but any interruption, depletion, or stagnation of Qi can lead to disease. The principle of acupuncture is to help the body regulate and heal itself.
