How Does Acupuncture Work?

Quoted From: http://www.ancientrivers.org/acupuncture-faq.html

"According to Chinese medical theory, we all have qi (pronounced "chee," which is energy or life-force) flowing through our bodies. Acupuncture reminds our bodies of how to let the qi flow smoothly. When qi flows smoothly, we are healthy and pain-free. From a western medical perspective, we know that acupuncture has effects on the nervous, vascular, musculo-skeletal and other systems of the body, but do not understand how it works.cupuncture needles are very fine - about the thickness of a human hair. There should be little or no discomfort with the insertion of the needles. For your safety, only single-use needles are used. They are disposed of through a medical hazardous waste facility, just like hospitals and western health clinics."
