What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture began to become better known in the United States in 1971.
Acupuncture is a traditional chinese medical technique for unblocking "Qi" by inserting needles at particular points on the body to balance our body circulation. "Qi" is energy that allegedly permeates all things. It's believed to flow through the body.
How Does it Work?
Acupuncture uses small, fine, flexible needles to stimulate the life energy known as "Qi" that flows along invisible channels beneath the surface of the skin. There are twelve main channels or "meridians", most of which are associated with an organ of the body.
When you visit an acupuncurist, she takes your pulse at several points along the wrist and looks at the shape, color, and coating of your tongue. The acupuncturist will also look at the color and texture of your skin, your posture, and other physical characteristics. Small needles will be in the areas that address the problem area and are removed at the end of the session painlessly.
