Acupuncture stimulates various points throughout the body where there might be a blockage of qi and energy to produce a therapeutic effect. These points are areas in the body where the qi commonly can become blocked. Blocked Qi and tight muscles often involves the reduction of blood and the reduction of nerve signals from the bodies organs and muscles to the brain. These blockages can also be caused by tight muscles, scar tissue, and poor qi and blood flow through joints.
Acupuncture can be used for a wide variety of conditions such as acute and chronic pain, respiratory conditions, digestive disorders, female and male fertility challenges, and much more.
If you can imagine your body like a city or metropolis, If you have an accident on several of its major highways then there will be a traffic jam and people and supplies are not able to reach their destination as fast or even at all. Acupuncture can be compared to the tow truck that removes the crashed and blocked cars, freeing up space for the backed up traffic to continue on their journey.
Acupuncture is the painless insertion of tiny filiform needles into acupuncture points, these are located on meridians which are pathways that run from one end of the body to other ends of the body. When these points are stimulated they also stimulate endorphins in the brain which also help to ease pain and discomfort.
