As always there is a long answer and a short one. To break it down into my elevator speech I would explain it as this. We are all made up of flesh and bones and we basically run on a very low voltage current. You may know that when people’s hearts aren’t good they often get a ‘pacemaker’, this is basically an electronic device to run timed current through someone’s heart to keep good rhythm. Acupuncture works on currents in our muscles. When you put in a steel needle (which doesn’t hurt by the way!) it conducts current and changes the flow of that current. It helps to reset an upset current system if you will, in the body. Kind of like ‘Ctrl + Alt + Delete’ on your computer when it doesn’t work. It is a gentle form of body reset, to improve health and help you relax.
