Though not visible to the naked eye the way electricity is invisible, qi is the life force by which our bodies protect and heals itself, leading to an increased sense of well-being. Modern medicine has yet to explain this thousands of years old medicine but scientific breakthroughs such as MRI imaging of the brain's pain centers before and after acupuncture are pouring forth. The United States Military takes it seriously, having integrated it for our wounded warriors. Universities from UCLA to Harvard Medical Schools are teaching medical doctors acupuncture. Why? Because it works and it works better than drugs in many cases. In fact many medical studies show it even enhances the efficacy of most prescription drugs without interference. For example, a study done in S. Korea showed that a combination of acupuncture and moxibustion therapy worked better than Prozac. Acupuncture releases endorphins and activates your own body's own innate healing mechanism.
