Acupuncture needles are placed along meridians or bands where energy flow is blocked and pain is stagnated. These tiny needles cause micro-traumas in the subcutaneous level of the skin and this rallies a human immune response which brings blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to these acupuncture points to restore and rebuild cells tagged by the needles. In the process blockages are cleared and energy can commence to flow through the meridian and expel pain. This patient is having her left hip needled as she attempts to rid herself of sciatic pain.
