What is Acupuncture ?
Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world and is an important part of traditional Chinese medicine. It has evolved into a medical system that can diagnose, treat and prevent illness. The acupuncture technique that has been most often studied scientifically, involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation. This process suggests that the body's vital energy ( chi or qi ) circulates through channels. These channels are sometimes blocked and acupuncture can help release these blocked channels and allow the energy to flow more freely.
