What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that has been used for centuries. It is based on the theory that there is energy, called Qi (pro- nounced “Chee”), flowing through your body. Qi is thought to flow along energy pathways called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that a blocking or imbalance of the flow of energy at any point on pathway may result in illness. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe acupuncture unblocks and rebalances the flow of Qi to restore health.
Traditional Chinese acupuncture is usually done by putting very thin stainless steal sterile disposable needles into the skin at certain points on the body to produce energy flow along the body’s meridians. Other types of acupuncture may use heat, pressure, or mild electrical to stimulate energy flow along these meridians to balance or harmonize Qi.
