How does acupuncture 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.
