It  usually applies to later flowering perennials that form a clump and throw up lots of stems-so works for asters, phlox and such like -it gives you a stockier multi-stemmed plant that flowers slightly later that if you hadn't cut it back.

Bit like pinching out on bedding plants gives you side shoots

But doesn't work on all plants and and aaquilegia isn't that sort of plant

Because mine got so big last year-I did butcher it and replanted 6/7 pieces as cuttings but also with ariel root attached higher up the stem--just pushed it all into the compost-all took and now have a much more compact specimen in the corner of the room
