Acupuncture is a holistic approach to healing that has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is based on the belief that energy, called Qi (pronounced “chee”), flows through the body along pathways called meridians. When the flow of Qi is disrupted, it can lead to pain, illness, and other conditions. Acupuncture aims to restore the balance of Qi and improve overall health.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body called acupoints. These points are located along the meridians and are believed to access the Qi flowing through the body. The needles are left in place for a period of time, typically 20-30 minutes, to allow the body to absorb the energy and promote healing.
