These pathways are a like mapping system of the body and acupuncturists use a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to access and use this system to stimulate and improve your Qi flow.  This re-balances the physiology of your naturally existing health regulatory systems.  The World Health Organization evaluated research data collected research data from acupuncture clinical trials and identified a variety of conditions where acupuncture has a proven benefit.
