How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture treatment harnesses the bodies energy, and helping it flow more freely. Symptoms of pain, illness or disharmony can be seen as a blockage to this energy resulting in the problems experienced by patients.  Through the insertion of fine needles into specific acupuncture points, the bodies energy can move more freely, aiding the natural healing process.
