How does acupuncture work and help me feel better?

Acupuncture works on the qi and blood in our body through needles inserted on acupuncture points on channels and meridians throughout the body. Channels and meridians are like grids all connected to each other. Through these lines, qi, the source of life, and blood should flow freely. When there are problems, our body manifests the symptoms, hence getting sick.

Acupuncture needles get access to our qi and blood through the acupuncture points and help them to heal themselves by promoting the body’s innate self healing power. For this reason, acupuncture is very safe, with minimal side effects from the treatment.
