Q&A: How does Acupuncture Work?
Video Series of on the Art of Acupuncture
I often get asked questions about acupuncture. Here is a short Q&As video. The first question: “How does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture has been in practice for thousands of years. The basis of the medicine is to balance the body so it can begin to heal itself. Acupuncture affects every system in the body, circulatory, endocrine, immune and nervous.
When acupuncture points are activated, signals are sent to the central nervous system and the brain. That information is processed and the body does its thing. The insertion of acupuncture needles creates a micro trauma, this action brings blood, vital nutrients with anti-inflammatory properties to the area.
As an acupuncturist, I am guiding your body towards healing itself. Our bodies are highly intelligent, they know what they need to heal. If you are feeling out of whack and your health is suffering, acupuncture is a great option. Acupuncture sessions can help guide your body back to a state of balance and healing.
“Your health accumulates over time. Take Care of your Body and it will Take Care of you.”
