What is it?
Acupuncture is a key component of Chinese traditional medicine in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body by inserting thin needles through the skin. Acupuncture balances the flow of energy or life force believed to flow through pathways in our body (meridians). These meridians and energy flows are accessible through 350 acupuncture points in our body; by inserting needles into these specific points along these pathways, acupuncture practitioners believe that the energy flow will re-balance.
Whether you are looking for relief from pain or a chronic health problem, or just to improve your body’s normal function, acupuncture may be the therapy you have been looking for.
