How does Acupuncture Therapy Work?

How does Acupuncture Therapy Work?

Acupuncture Therapy works by stimulating specific points on the body known as acupuncture points or acupoints. These points are believed to correspond to channels or meridians through which Qi, or vital energy, flows. By inserting thin needles into these points, acupuncture helps to restore the balance and flow of Qi, promoting healing and alleviating symptoms. This ancient practice is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and is commonly used to address a wide range of health concerns, from pain management to stress reduction.

Benefits of Acupuncture Therapy

One of the primary benefits of acupuncture is its remarkable ability to alleviate pain. Whether it’s chronic back pain, migraines, or joint discomfort, acupuncture offers a natural and drug-free solution. Beyond pain relief, acupuncture is celebrated for its positive impact on mental health, reducing stress, anxiety, and promoting overall emotional well-being.

You’ll then be comfortably positioned on a treatment table, and sterile, hair-thin needles will be inserted into targeted acupuncture points. The needles may be gently manipulated to enhance the flow of Qi. You’ll relax for about 20-40 minutes with the needles in place before they are removed.
