How Does Acupuncture Work?

The human body has a miraculous capacity to heal itself – Acupuncture is just the modality to help in that process. In order to understand Acupuncture, think of the body as a variety of pathways (or meridians). For the Acupuncturist, these energetic pathways are understood and best described as freeways of information that can be finely tuned.  Each needle inserted into a "point" acts as a dial, of sorts, recalibrating, reinvigorating and unblocking those meridians. The energetic information is then freely carried through those energy super highways to nourish organs and stimulate the peripheral nervous system.
