How does acupuncture work?

The modern acupuncture practice has been developed based on both traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and medical science through the past 60 years. Acupuncture effects on the "Qi flow" network of the body, including brain, nerve, muscle, fascia, and inter-organs to rebalance or improve the physical conditions and self healing power. Many benefits of acupuncture have been well documented, such as pain and stress management, anti-inflammation, neural and immune function modulations. Dr. Jing Liu was engaged in the acupuncture research project at Massachusetts General Hospital for over 10 years, a world leading project at the time. They discovered valuable scientific evidence for acupuncture effects on brain. Please refer to the publication:
