Acupuncture: How does it work?

Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites, acupuncture points, or acupoints, and inserting fine, sterile needles into the skin. Acupuncture therapy can release blocked Qi in the body and stimulate function, evoking the body’s natural healing response.
Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, improve sleep, digestive function, and sense of well-being.

What to expect during an acupuncture treatment?

During an acupuncture treatment, the acupuncturist will go over the health history of the patient. The tongue’s shape, color, and coating will be examined. Pulse quality will be also examined. A proper treatment plan will be addressed according to the diagnosis, and then acupuncture treatment will be done, by inserting the needles in various areas of the body. Most people feels no, or minimal discomfort when the needle is placed. The needles are usually retained for 30 minutes.
