The art and science of placing acupuncture points strategically in millennia old body locations to help alleviate pain and other health conditions. There are 12 major pathways on each side of the body that when blocked can cause dysfunction. There are two ways that acupuncture is explained in regards to how it works. The first way is the traditional explanation. The ancients who founded acupuncture art and science thousands of years ago believed that when the meridians had dysfunctional flow, there would be bodily dysfunction in that area. Virtually any symptoms and sign could be explained by these ancients by applying this theory and technique. Modern day science, believe it or not, has extensively researched acupuncture and its role in healing through academic research studies for just about any condition you can think of. What science has found is that when these key acupuncture points are stimulated, the body begins to produce all sorts of feel good and anti inflammatory chemicals naturally to help heal and bring homeostasis to the body. This in turn brings back a more healthy state of being and the patient begins to improve. No matter which school of thought your prefer to believe, the art and science of Acupuncture seems to work!
