Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine in which tiny needles are inserted into the body to stimulate points. It is used to diagnose and treat all types of health ailments ranging from the common cold to life threatening illness.
Acupuncture is described as a way to balance the flow of life force “qi” which is always flowing through the body in pathways called meridians. Balancing the flow is done by inserting very thin needles in a patient’s skin to open the pathways and release blockages in the paths. It is believed, especially in the western world, that the needles also stimulate nerves and activate natural pain relief in the body. They also increase blood supply.
