How does treatment work?
Traditional Chinese Medicine explains our health through the balance of the opposing 'yin' and 'yang' life forces - or 'qi' - that flow throughout the body. While strong health is associated with balance of the qi, illness is explained as deriving from energy imbalances.
This energy is said to flow across the body through 12 'meridians' (or channels), accessible via 361 specific acupoints.
Both acupuncture and acupressure seek to correct energy imbalances by stimulating specific combinations of the acupoints.

"An abundance of information has now accumulated concerning the neurobiological mechanisms of acupuncture, in relation to both neural pathways and neurotransmitters/hormonal factors that mediate autonomic regulation, pain relief and other therapeutics." 
Some scientists explain acupuncture and acupressure through neurobiology, seeing the acupoints as specific positions where the muscles and nerves can be stimulated to bring about benefit to the muscular , immune , cardiovascular  and autonomic nerve systems , as well as blood flow .
