What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of traditional Chinese medicine, (TCM), acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body.  The body has fourteen major energy channels called meridians. These meridians flow through different areas of the body including the head, arms, legs, abdomen, feet, back and internal organs.  A subtle energy called Chi circulates by the meridians to all parts of the body, even the most remote cells.  Blockage, misdirection or other derangement of the amount, flow or balance of Chi can result in pain, dysfunction, and ill health.  Acupuncture needles or acupressure stimulate certain points along the meridian, this stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of Chi in the body, which sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.
