How does acupuncture work?

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine. The ancient Chinese recognised the vital energy Qi flowing in the human body along specific pathways called meridians. Each meridian is associated with particular internal organs. When the energy becomes blocked, disease occurs. The meridians communicate with the surface of the body at specific locations called acupuncture points. Needles inserted in these points influence the Qi and help internal organs.Using pulse and tongue diagnosis, along with findings from other signs and symptoms, the practitioner defines a treatment plan.

Is acupuncture safe?

Acupuncture needles are very fine, sterile and disposable. A licensed acupuncturist has had thorough training on the safe implementation of this treatment modality. Ella was trained as an acupuncturist to British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) standards at the University of Salford. She abides by BAcC codes of hygiene and professionalism.

Is acupuncture painful?

Acupuncture needles are very fine and flexible, about the size of a human hair. They bear no resemblance to the needles used when receiving an injection. In most cases, insertion by a skilled practitioner is performed with a minimum of discomfort. Most patients find the treatments very relaxing and many fall asleep during the treatment.Acupuncture may include a variety of non-needle techniques, such as moxibustion and cupping.

It's a mystery and a miracle: An acupuncture needle inserted in the pinkie toe changes a breech baby's position in the womb. How is this possible?
Recent advances in technology have helped unlock some biological mysteries of this 3,000-year-old medical practice. Researchers are closer to understanding how an acupuncture needle can subtly adjust the body's tissues, nerves, and hormones,
but still, no one fully understands how acupuncture works. Does it boost our body's painkilling ability, or it affects the blood flow? Can it help our body manage depression to promote further healing? Scientists continue to study and debate the issues.
