What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the most ancient healing techniques in the world, dating to approximately 4000 years ago. In Acupuncture treatments, hair-thin needles are inserted into specific points on the body called acupuncture points.

Chinese Medicine theory supports that these acupuncture points exist on meridians (or channels), which carry Qi (pronounced chee) throughout our body. Although difficult to accurately translate, the concept of Qi is often referred to as life energy. Acupuncturists work with the acupuncture points to promote free flow of Qi within the twelve main meridians.

A highly effective preventive method of medicine, acupuncture has also been the system of choice for treating acute and chronic conditions that may affect the body. Additionally, acupuncture patients seeking mental and/or spiritual health benefit vastly from this drug-free approach, which targets overall balance. Both the National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization recognize acupuncture to be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical problems.
