Stimulating the body's energy flow to promote healing.
Acupuncture has been practiced in eastern countries for 2,500 years. It's a traditional form of Chinese medicine based on the understanding that our body's motivating energy force or Qi (pronounced chi) moves through a network of channels, or meridians, that run beneath the skin.
According to Acupuncture theory, illness arises from blockages in the energy flow. Therapists insert fine, sterile needles at various points on the meridians to rebalance the body's energy.
