Acupuncture is a form of medicine that stimulates specific spots with some tools (needles, dried herbs) to pull out the body’s self-healing power. The ancient Chinese discovered that there were the pathways of energy on the body and when they had illness, the specific spots on the energy pathway showed various signs such as pain, tightness or weakness. They also learned that reducing the signs on the pathways leaded to healing the illness. Acupuncture was developed specifically as the method to treat the signs appearing on the pathways and pull out the body’s self-healing power.
The energy pathway is like an irrigation ditch in a field, the energy is like water in the irrigation ditch and every cell in the body is like crops in the field. When the water flows everywhere, all crops are healthy, but if the water is blocked by some reason, crops can’t get enough water to stay healthy and there is a place where water overflows from the ditch. In the body, the place where water overflows are where signs such as pain, tightness or weakness appears. Acupuncture can help remove the blockage and make water (energy) delivered to every crop (cell), restoring self-healing power.
