How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body, known as acupuncture points or acupoints. These acupoints are believed to be connected through energy pathways, known as meridians, which correspond to different organs and systems in the body. By stimulating these points, acupuncture aims to restore the flow of energy and promote the body’s natural healing abilities.
