Acupoints acupuncture points to be set first. Accurate acupoints require patients to have a certain position, such as riding, side, Shen Zhang, fist, etc.; common point selection methods, one is based on the body's natural signs to point selection, such as the two head straight tip, take Baihui; A patient is a finger or several fingers, the width of a standard part of the acupoints; There is also a distance from all parts of the human body, certain provisions of inches, to the degree of bone to acupoints. Only confirm the signs, a good amount of bone level measured, note this point and up and down, so the relationship between adjacent points in order to achieve accurate point selection purposes.


 There is no simple answer to this question. In the Orient, suffice it to say that acupuncture stimulates and regulates our energy to balance patients’ Qi, Blood, Yin & Yang. Within the West we are always looking for another explanation that more easily fits into our concept of what medicine is and how medicine works. Unfortunately no one can firmly say, acupuncture works by such and such method.... The problem is that there are many different styles and techniques of acupuncture and they do not fit any one particular model. We do have some understanding about how acupuncture works, but we do not have the complete picture.

Conventional Western medical sciences still cannot explain how acupuncture works. But some research about acupuncture conducted in China, Japan, Europe and USA, has indicated the effect of acupuncture might come from the nervous system and other systems within human body. When the needle is inserted into the patient's body, it stimulates the body's nervous system and causes some reactions, which will balance the problems inside the body. Some research found there were some chemical materials detected in the patient's body after the treatment of acupuncture. In a word, there is still a long way to go for modern sciences to completely explain about acupuncture.
Traditional Chinese acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese theories of the flow of Qi (Human Energy) and Xue (Blood) through distinct meridians or pathways that cover the body somewhat like the nerves and blood vessels do. According to ancient theory, acupuncture allows Qi to flow to areas where it is deficient and away from where it is in excess. In this way, acupuncture regulates and restores the harmonious energetic balance of the body. In Chinese there is a saying, "There is no pain if there is free flow of Qi and blood; if there is pain somewhere, that's because Qi and blood flow are blocked there." When the Qi, Blood, Yin & Yang imbalance occurs, the patient could manifest pain or other symptoms such as insomnia, headache, constipation, etc. based on where the imbalance is.

In short, there are many theories about how acupuncture works but there is no one conclusive answer. There are two kinds of explanation about how acupuncture works. I would like to give a traditional explanation. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there exist meridian systems through the human body and more than 360 acupuncture points are located at these meridians. Qi, or life force energy, flows through these meridians internally connecting the organs named such as the Lung meridian or the Liver meridian and externally linking to specific body surfaces named acupuncture points. When the Qi is obstructed in certain meridians, or acupuncture points, the function of tissue, muscles and organs will be impaired. By inserting acupuncture needles into acupuncture points it helps the release of Qi flow and corrects imbalances at the organ level to improve your energy and internal processes.
There has been a recent study in Germany involving 40,000 patients and their experience with acupuncture. Please click on the study to see the full details of this report.


Eastern Explanation:

The Eastern Explanation for how Acupunctures works is that the life energy flowing through the body which is termed Qi (pronounced chee) can be influenced and balanced by stimulating specific points on the body. These points are located along channels of energy known as meridians that connect all of our major organs. According to Chinese medical theory, illness arises when the cyclical flow of Qi in the meridians becomes unbalanced or is blocked.

Western Explanation:

Definition of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve the desired effect.

Explanation of How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture points are areas of designated electrical sensitivity. Inserting needles at these points stimulates various sensory receptors that, in turn, stimulate nerves that transmit impulses to the hypothalamic-pituitary system at the base of the brain.

The hypothalamus-pituitary glands are responsible for releasing neurotransmitters and endorphins, the body's natural pain-killing hormones. It is estimated that endorphins are 200 times more potent than morphine. Endorphins also play a big role in the functioning of the hormonal system. This is why acupuncture works well for back pain and arthritis and also for P.M.S. and infertility.

The substances released as a result of acupuncture not only relax the whole body, they regulate serotonin in the brain which plays a role in human and animal disposition. This is why depression is often treated with acupuncture.

Some of the physiological effects observed throughout the body include increased circulation, decreased inflammation, relief from pain, relief of muscle spasms and increased T-cell count which stimulates the immune system.
