What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment that has roots in ancient Chinese medicine. In acupuncture, very fine needles are inserted at specific sites on the body for pain relief, therapeutic or preventative purposes.
How does acupuncture work?
Traditional Chinese medical practitioners believe that the human body has more than 2,000 acupuncture sites connected by pathways. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced “chee”) through the body that is responsible for overall health. Any offset in this pathway can causes illnesses. By applying acupuncture treatment to certain sites, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving overall health and wellbeing.
