Acupuncture is a complex branch of ancient Chinese medicine, in use for over 2,000 years. Acupuncture involves the stimulation of anatomical points on the body, achieved through the use of small, thin, metallic needles. This stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of Qi (pronounced CHEE) so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony. This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.
