What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture originated from China and has been practised for thousands of years. It involves the insertion of very thin needles to various depths, through the patient’s skin at specific points on the body.
According to Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of yin and yang of the life force known as Qi. Qi flows through meridians (pathways) in the human body. Through 350 acupuncture points in the body, these meridians and energy flows may be accessed. When a person is unwell, it is often related to an imbalance of the energy. When needles are inserted into the right points with appropriate combinations, it can bring the energy flow back into the state of proper balance.
