How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and involves inserting fine needles on specific points on the body. These energy points are connected to internal organs and body systems. It is also said that qi (life energy) moves around the body in energy channels, or meridians, and blockages in energy movement can lead to illnesses. When needles are inserted on certain points along these channels, blockages are cleared and energy movement stimulated.
