One might imagine that if someone were sticking needles in your body that your blood pressure would go up.
Indeed, acupuncture needles placed in the right points on the body can significantly lower blood pressure and these results persist over time.
Acupuncture is a very old medical therapy and has been a part of traditional Oriental medicine for thousands of years. It involves the placement of small, very thin needles into specific points throughout the body.
Specific locations of these acupuncture points have been well described for many different illnesses. In traditional Oriental medicine all illness is the result of improper energy flow. There is either not enough energy, too much energy or the energy isn’t moving. It is stagnating.
Inserting needles at various acupuncture points and leaving them there for a period of time stimulates the proper flow of energy. Where the energy is flowing well, illness cannot exist.
