What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a Chinese health practice in which very thin sterile needles are inserted to specific points on the body. It is based on the Chinese theory that a form of vital energy called Qi (Chee) circulates in the body through a system of channels called meridians. The acupuncture points are located on the surface of the body at very specific locations along the meridians. These points are connected to the meridians and to internal organs and each point affects different functions of the body.
How does it work?
This form of ancient medicine believes that an illness occurs when something interrupts the smooth flow of Qi (stagnation) or unbalances it. By the insertion of needles to those points one can readjust the flow of Qi, open the blockage and rebalance it.
Scientific studies revealed that Acupuncture induces biochemical changes in the body through the nervous and hormonal systems which can be used to treat a wide variety of health issues.
