how does it work?

According to traditional Chinese Medicine, the life force or qi (pronounced "chee") , flows through a system of pathways or meridians in the body. Each meridian is connected between the surface of the body and internal organs such as the lung, spleen, etc. Acupuncture works on the patterns of disharmony within the body, releasing the blocked qi or vital energy and is instrumental in getting a good flow of blood or nourishment around the body. It promotes the natural flow of qi which regulates spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance.
