Research shows that acupuncture increases circulation, reduces inflammation, increases production of analgesics and other painkiller substances in the body, regulates the parasympathetic nervous system, and reduces stress. An acupuncturist, classically trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine, will tell you that qi, or, energy, circulates in meridians, or, pathways, throughout the body and by placing needles along the acupuncture points that land on these meridians, we are able to have a systemic effect on the homeostasis of the body. The field of Traditional Chinese Medicine is around 4000 years old, and as such is in an ever-evolving conversation about how it works.
