What is acupuncture?


Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points along the body. Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and can be traced back at least 2,500 years. The general theory of acupuncture is that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Theory is that acupuncture may correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of qi.
