How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture has helped billions of people and has been the primary source of health care in China for more than 2,500 years. This system of health care is based on the principle that to be healthy, tissues and organs need proper supply of blood and oxygen and nutrients the blood carries. Over 2,000 specific points have been mapped out where a block in flow of blood can occur. These points often are where nerves and vessels meet. A method of diagnosing which points to treat to increase the flow of blood allows the trained acupuncturist to get results with all types of health problems.

The best analogy to explain acupuncture results would be to compare a plant that was deprived of water.

Without water a plant would wither and slowly die.

If you tried to water that plant wit a hose that had a kink or blockage that prevent water from getting through, then the plant would die. Remove the blockage or kink in the hose and give the plant water it will recover. You probably have seen this yourself if you have household plants.

Acupuncture finds where the blockage is in your body that is stopping life-giving blood and oxygen from flowing to your cells, organs, or tissues.

Acupuncture needles are so thin that they do not stimulate enough nerve ending to cause pain.

Acupuncturists are trained to find and remove the blockage in the flow of blood, which then allows your tissues and organs to heal. Two billion people worldwide and twelve million Americans use Acupuncture to solve their health problems.
