|How Does it Work?|
Perhaps the best way to think about acupuncture is to imagine rivers of energy throughout your body, organized by meridians. These meridians can experience a “log jam” and energy flow is restricted. The needles help loosen the logjam and allow energy to circulate properly. Acupuncture is a principle, not a technique. Therefore, there are many ways to stimulate an Acupuncture point other than a needle. For infants and children (or those with a serious fear of needles), we may use electronic stimulation, laser, or pressure massage to treat an Acupoint. The principle of Acupuncture does not change, only the technique.
