Acupuncture regulates the systems of the body to achieve homeostasis and allows healing to take place optimally. There are many theories of this ancient art and science with some mysticism, however technology has taken much of the uncertainty from it with the advancement of accurate graphing methods and thermography. It is now possible to see acupuncture points on various forms of imaging to prove the long time theory that energy flows through the body and junctions at various common and predictable points. These points can be stimulated to produce a desired effect and promote healing.

Stem Cells and Acupuncture
The emerging discovery of stem cell research shows us that within our own blood we hold the magical ability to regenerate cells including cartilage, muscle, and other tissues that have deteriorated in the aging process. The introduction of a needle in to a degenerated area will bring fresh stem sells that will help the tissues to grow from undifferentiated cells. Think of it as a form of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) where the needle allow stem cells and nutrients to reach your muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. You will be able to get more mileage from your body with acupuncture and stem cell science.
