How does Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is based on the ancient Chinese theory of Qi (energy) which flows through channels or meridian pathways running through our body.

When the body is in balance, the Qi travels smoothly through the channels in a specific direction or flow pattern.



However when the Qi is out of balance, it will stagnate or gather in particular points. These are the points where fine, sterile needles are inserted to move, disperse or re-route the Qi thus restoring balance and assisting well-being and good health.
