acupuncture: how it works
Think of your body as your house:
A physical structure with electrical wiring (nervous system), plumbing (metabolism) and physical elements such as wood and/or steel (bones), insulation/plaster (flesh) and paint/stucco/siding (skin).
Now, imagine an acupuncture needle as a light switch. Sometimes we need to "illuminate" certain areas of concern: we are in the kitchen and need to turn on the garbage disposal; we push a button to open the garage door, we adjust the thermostat to control the heat and AC, we flip a light switch at the bottom of the staircase to illuminate the top of it.
We do these things via electricity. Think of an acupuncture needle similarly to this construct: we take an ultra-thin, electrically conductive material and insert it into the body into areas that have been proven over time to affect certain areas and functions. Essentially, what we are doing is turning on a light switch. This switch indicates to the body that we want to turn on a certain light, open a certain door, initiate a certain function.
By accessing the body's intricate electrical and fascial systems, we not only indicate to the body what we desire for it to perform, but also put up red flags for it to address. It is a truly ingenious system. And to think, it was developed before Western Science so many eons ago!
Today, we pair the ancient art of acupuncture and Eastern Medicine with modern medical techniques to effectively relieve pain, correct structural imbalances and address underlying causes of disease with lasting effects.
