How Acupuncture Works

By Sam Sullivan

Acupuncture is the insertion of thin needles into the body for the purposes of pain relief. Traditional Chinese medicine is based on the philosophy that the universe and the body are opposing forces. The constant flow of energy keeps them balanced. When the flow of energy is blocked, illness will occur. Acupuncture therapy will release blocked energy, resolve the pain, and improve sleep, digestive functions, and sense of well-being.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, health is the result of a harmonious balance of “yin” and “yang” of the life force called “qi,” (pronounced “chi”). Illness arises as a consequence of an imbalance of these forces. Qi flows through meridians, or pathways, in the body. These meridians and energy flows are accessed through 350 acupuncture points in the body.

Acupuncture has been shown to help conditions ranging from muscle pains in the back or knee, especially from conditions of osteoarthritis, to headache and neck pain. It can also be effective for high blood pressure, sprains, sciatica, tennis elbow, dental pain, and allergic rhinitis, among many other conditions. There is a wide range of issues and challenges that can be alleviated or fixed with a talented acupuncturist.

Traditional medicine has often taken a conventional approach to pain that involves physical therapy, rehab, and medication. Acupuncture takes ancient Chinese medicinal systems and applies them to a modern, new-age concept of healing that goes beyond what we’re used to.
