How does acupuncture work? Acupuncture improves the body's functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites--commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. Studies have shown that acupuncture is effective for a variety of conditions.
