The true concepts of Traditional Chinese medicine operate under known physiological principles, involving the complex organization of the neural, vascular, endocrine, visceral, and somatic systems, sustained by the circulation of nutrients and oxygen from air.
If blood circulation in a vessel, tissue, organ or pathway is blocked, stagnant, in excess or deficient, an internal state imbalance of the body is reflected throughout the organism.
Notice that reducing resistance in a conductor allows more electricity to flow through it (known as Ohm's law). Reducing resistance through blood vessels, lymph vessels, tissues, organs eliminates pain and discomfort. Through stimulation of various neural pathways; acupuncture has the ability to unblock the circulation of blood, oxygen, nutrients, hormones, enzymes, anti-inflammatories and support optimum circulation, promoting homeostasis.
