According to the traditional Chinese theory, meridians serve as "routes" that run at different depths through the human body, and acupuncture points are like "hubs" where the vital energy accumulates. By working with the acupuncture points and the meridians with appropriate methods, the vital energy can begin its healing to the affected areas of the body.
Acupuncture can also be a powerful tool that affects the inner self that may need the healing first. Sometimes the physical imbalance is deeply rooted in the emotional wounds that one carries through life. In those cases, physical symptoms often diminish when the "root" cause is successfully addressed.
The common perception is that acupuncture is effective in pain relief, but that it only works for some people and usually requires continuous visits to see results. This is NOT true. According to the Chinese Medicine classic literatures, acupuncture, if done right, should offer instant pain relief for almost everyone.
My experience is that in most cases pain symptoms can be "turned off" instantly like turning off a light. In other cases, due to the chronicity and complexity of the symptoms, pain will not diminish immediately but will lessen noticeably.
The unique style of acupuncture practiced at Classical Oriental Medicine also produces great result for chronic internal conditions such as infertility, high blood pressure, allergies etc. Most patients who have undergone conventional medication/therapies, and received little or no relief were amazed at how our style of acupuncture helped them achieve what their doctors would never think possible.
