How does Acupuncture work?

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, disease is theorized to result from disruptions in the flow of energy, “Qi,” which travels along the body’s meridians. It is believed that when this flow of Qi is disrupted, it leads to the physical manifestations of disease. By stimulating acupuncture points using fine needles, Qi is released to travel through the meridians. Modern theories and research seem to suggest that the benefits of acupuncture arise from its effects on neurohormonal, biochemical, or immune system pathways.
