How Does Acupuncture Work? | Calgary Acupuncture

How does acupuncture work?

This is a question I am asked by almost all of my acupuncture patients in Calgary at one point or another. The Chinese Medicine answer is easy, acupuncture works by moving Qi through the meridians to remove any blockages and redirect energy through the body to stimulate healing.

The only problem with that answer is that it doesn’t satisfy the average person who doesn’t understand meridians or Qi. Rather than going into a very long blog post that still won’t answer all of the question, I’ll let you watch this documentary. It isn’t perfect and doesn’t include ALOT of the evidence that has been compiling over the last few decades but it’s a good watch.
