Tentatively naming it The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these early pincushioneers discovered than uneven flow of energy through these pathways can cause any number of diseases, ailments and pain. Acupuncture works by applying small, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi likes to hang out, stimulating proper energy flow and relieving impediments to good health.
