How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works as a natural diuretic and helps the body to eliminate toxins in urine cleansing organs such as the kidneys, colon, skin and liver. The process is believed to balance of Qi (pronounced as chi) which is an important life energy force that creates nourishment and alignment of body functions. The onset of the QI energy begins when the needle gets into contact with an acupressure point resulting to a tingling tender effect on the contact area. It is said that the higher the load of toxins in your body the more you will feel the discomfort of the needle. Despite the fact that acu-points are near the skin surface, needles are the only efficient tools since the points are located in muscles, tendons or spaces in-between joints. A professional acupuncturist can make the entire process less painful than normally anticipated.
