Sorry, What is energy?

As an acupuncturist I’m often asked ‘how does acupuncture work?’ Quickly followed by ‘So do you think it really works?’

My response is alway this ‘in Chinese Medicine we believe that the body is mapped with invisible channels that run throughout your body, where the energy flows, it flows like a river of energy, some points it floods, some points it trickles and some points through our emotions or physical blocks build up dams, creating the river of energy to flow the incorrect path or create a block that starves the rest of the network.  Acupuncture can restore that balance and flow of invisible energy, creating a comfortable calmness and strong feeling of relaxation.’
