How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture directs, regulates and balances Qi (pronounced “chee”), which is the vital energy that flows through the body. By restoring the balance of Qi, acupuncture treats pain and disease, and also promotes general wellness.
Qi flows through the body in pathways called Meridians. There are twelve regular Meridians (a total of 71 Meridians, in all), which are generally named for major organs. The Meridians are somewhat related to the physical organs, however, they specifically relate to the Chinese “energetic” functions. Meridian pathways connect internal organs and the surface of the body, as well as muscles, bones, joints, etc. Acupuncture points are access portals along the Meridians or pathways.
When Qi flows freely and in the correct proportions through the Meridians, the body is in harmony and the person is healthy and balanced.
When the flow of Qi is blocked, deficient or excess, the harmony of the body is disrupted and pain or disease results. There is a Chinese saying, “If there is free flow, there is no pain; if there is no free flow, there is pain“.
The goal of acupuncture is to restore the free flow of Qi, balance and health to the body, by stimulating specific points along the Meridians
