What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is ancient Chinese medicine dating back almost 2,500 years ago. It’s based on yin and yang, the balance within the body. Just as medical doctors view the body as a system made up of veins and arteries, oxygen and blood, an acupuncturist considers it an arrangement of channels, or meridians, where life energy (or qi) and blood flow. When qi or blood is disrupted or compromised, the body is not in balance and illness or pain may occur. The insertion of ultra-thin needles (about the thickness of a human hair) at distinct points along these meridians stimulates the qi and blood and lessens symptoms, and many times, eliminates the condition all together.
