Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management, hormonal imbalances and fertlity treatment.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy known as qi (chee). This energy is believed to flow through pathways in your body called meridians. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance resulting in improved health and overall well being.
