Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a therapeutic practice that involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body. These points, known as acupuncture points, are located along pathways called meridians, which are believed to correspond to the body's energy flow. By stimulating these points, acupuncturists aim to restore the balance of energy, or Qi (pronounced "chee"), and facilitate the body's innate ability to heal itself.
