What is Acupuncture ?
Acupuncture treats health conditions by stimulationg
"acu-points" found at specific locations on the surface of the body.
Acupuncture stimulates the acu-points by inserting very thin needles through the skin to produce physiological effects.
The general theory of acupuncture is that proper physiological function and health depends on the circulation of nutrients, substances and energy called Qi through a network of "channels" or "meridians." This network connects every organ and part of the body, providing balance, regulation and coordination of physiological processes.
Stimulation of the appropriate acu-points through acupuncture treatments helps to restore the sufficient, continuous and even flow of Qi and other nutrients throughout the body. This thereby helps restore health and balance to the body, while relieving pain and other symptoms.
