Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. It is one of the oldest healing techniques in the world, dating back over 2,000 years.
Acupuncture is based on the concept that the body has a vital energy called "qi" (pronounced "chee") that flows along pathways known as meridians. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), when the flow of qi is disrupted or blocked, it can lead to various health issues, and acupuncture is used to restore the balance and flow of qi. There are several different kinds of Acupuncture including: Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, Japanese Acupuncture, 5 Element Acupuncture, and more.
