How does acupuncture work?

“The symptoms of an illness are caused by the malfunction of an organ, due to the organ being stressed in some way. And due to the association that exists between that organ and a specific bodily location, the malfunction causes that location to become tender. By needling one of these tender locations, this same association is utilized but in reverse, which appears to encourage the associated organ to cancel out the particular malfunction in itself that caused the location to become tender. The organ function returns to normal and the symptoms clear.”

The above passage is taken from my book: Secrets of the Hidden Vessels. The book describes this hypothesis in detail and also translates and clearly explains the key aspects of Chinese medicine, using terms and concepts that can be understood by today’s readers.
