How Does Acupuncture Work



How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture treats everything from infertility, pregnancy symptoms, miscarriage, back pain, migraines, digestive problems, and stress.  

It works by balancing the “qi” throughout your body.  Qi is the vital energy in all living things, from the tallest tree to the smallest cell.

Acupuncture meridians are like rivers inside the body.  Wherever a river flows, it carries water that provides nourishment and sustenance for life on our planet.  When a river runs dry or bottlenecks, animals, plants and all forms of life either go thirsty or get damaged by the excess flow.

Similarly, meridians are the rivers where Qi flows inside of us.  Qi flows through meridians as an invisible current, energizing, nourishing and supporting every cell, gland, muscle, organ, and gland.

When blood and qi flow get blocked, it causes disease.  Acupuncture works by unblocking blood and qi flow and redirecting it the areas that need it.
