In Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, there is a vital energy, called Qi (pronounced ‘chee’), circulating within the body. Qi flows through a series of pathways called meridians to nourish cell, tissue, muscle, tendon, organ and gland in the body. It is important for Qi to flow freely throughout the body. If there is a blockage in the flow of Qi anywhere in the body, it will inhibit the nourishment and eventually cause a variety of symptoms including pain.
By inserting fine, sterile needles at specific points, acupuncture is able to break up blockages that have inhibited the smooth flow of Qi. Once the blockage started to get unblocked and the free flow of Qi is restored, your pain will alleviate.
Many patients report that the pain is significant reduced from 25% to 80% within minutes after inserting the needles.
