Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points in the body that have a therapeutic effect. This treatment gives the body more energy, stimulates the production of different hormones or neurotransmitters, and increases circulation to a specific area. Of course, 3000 years ago no one knew about hormones and neurotransmitters, they just saw that when you stimulated specific areas, and different groups of points, people got better. You may hear people talk about “Qi” or “Meridians” but these are just terms that were used to explain what was being seen clinically. It is important to know that the only reason acupuncture is still around is because these results have been repeated over and over again, by different providers, in different countries and on numerous patients with similarly efficacious results.
