How acupuncture works?

From a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective, trauma blocks an energy (qi) and blood (xue) flow. Pain and dysfunction are the results of this blockage. Acupuncture is used to restore the flow of energy and blood.

From a western perspective, acupuncture decreases pain, inflammation, promotes healing and regulates the immune and endocrine systems.
