How Acupuncture Works
Traditional Chinese Medicine has made use of acupuncture for 3,000 years. The basic premise is that illness results from an imbalance of yin and yang, causing blocks to the energy or “qi” that flows through meridians in the body. The acupuncturist applies tiny, fine needles to energy points to break up the blockages, restore flow, and promote healing.
The number of treatments a patient needs can vary from one to several. Conditions that benefit from acupuncture include everything from headaches to diabetes to hypertension, arthritis, and strokes.
