Acupuncture is among the oldest, most commonly used 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. According to TCM, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body. Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. Acupuncture stimulates your body's natural healing mechanisms, helping to restore your physical and mental balance.
