Acupuncture’s ability to treat pain and disease is based on an energetic model of the human body. Pain or disease occurs in the body when there is a deficiency or an imbalance of the energy in the meridians.
Acupuncture points are specific locations along the meridians. Over the centuries, it has been documented that the insertion of a very fine needle at a given point has a very predictable effect on the energy that passes through that point, restoring balance in the meridian.
Research has shown that acupuncture has the ability to increase circulation, reduce inflammation and stimulate the body's own
opiate-like chemicals to control pain.
