How does acupuncture work?
The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels called meridians are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like dam that backs up in others. The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points. The acupuncture needles unblock the obstruction at the dams and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians.
Scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemical( Endorphins) in the muscles, spinal cord and brain these chemical will change the experience of pain or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulating system. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture result in stimulating the body's natural healing ability and in promoting physical and emotional well-being. The world health organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problem including.
