There is a very complex theory behind the Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnostic systems and healing mechanisms of Acupuncture. It takes many years to learn and understand it. The best explanation that I found about how Acupuncture works is presented in the book “The Spark in the Machine: How the Science of Acupuncture Explains the Mysteries of Western Medicine”, written by Dr Daniel Keown. This book explains how the theories of Western and Chinese medicine support each other, and how the integrated theory expands our understanding of human (and animal) physiology.
Some effects of acupuncture are:
Calms And Balances Neuro-Endocrine Axis
Balanced nervous system is essential for proper functioning of hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.
Opens And Regulates Microcirculation
Acupuncture brings more blood flow to the glands and tissues that need the most support, which enables them to naturally work better. This means key tissues like thyroid, liver, adrenals, ovaries, and others are able to function at peak levels.
Promotes Tissue Healing
Acupuncture stimulates body’s healing process, helping it to repair and restore all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.
Helps Your Body Sustain Optimal Function
With acupuncture as a weekly therapy, your body naturally and gently undergoes positive changes. The effects are cumulative.
Reasons To Choose Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a conduit for nature - an advanced technique for awakening, modulating and directing the natural self-healing system of your body.

Depending on your unique needs, the other modalities such asCupping, Gua Sha, Moxibustion, Light Therapy, E-stim might also be applied in your treatment session to increase the blood flow, loosen the fascia or connective tissue, and to stimulate healing.

Thousands of years of documented experience supported by modern scientific studies have shown it to be effective for a wide range of health conditions. Acupuncture has been empirically and scientifically proven and officially recognized as an effective complementary and alternative medicine.
