How Does Acupuncture Work?

In the view of modern Oriental Medicine the body is comprised of a network of energy pathways called meridians. When a pathway is blocked, the energy flow is decreased or stopped. Illness, pain, or a feeling of general disease can result. Filaments, as fine as human hairs, are inserted into selective sites on the surface of the body to unblock the pathways and allow the meridian energy to flow normally and to restore the body to its natural state of balance. In western physiology, we would call these Neurological Nodes, as these places have been scientifically designated as places where nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels have an influence on the body’s health and wellness.
