How does acupuncture work? Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are both based on the concept of Yin and Yang and seek to treat the whole patient, not just their presenting symptoms. Pain or illness are seen as indicators that the body’s energy, or ‘qi’, is blocked or lacking and the body is out of balance. Treatment aims to re-establish the flow of qi to trigger the body’s natural healing response. In an acupuncture session, fine sterile needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points to achieve this.
