What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture works on the vast network of electro-magnetic fields and pathways of the human body. Your acupuncturist inserts very thin needles through the skin. By stimulating these “acu-points,” found at specific areas along well-defined pathways of the body, physiological effects occur, which stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. Stimulation of the appropriate acu-points helps to restore sufficient, continuous, and even flow of Qi (vital energy) and other nutrients throughout the body.
