What is it?
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practiced for thousands of years in China and other Eastern Countries. Acupuncture subscribes to the ancient view that the basis of good health is the harmonious balance of qi (chi), the vital life force that empowers the body. When the qi can flow freely, health abounds. If this energy becomes stagnant or blocked, the effects will result in loss of energy and the deterioration of well-being. The acupuncturistâ€™s goal is to release blocked energy by applying sterilized needs to key points on the body to restore balance and improve health.
