What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture, one of the oldest known systems of healing in the world, has been used for thousands of years in China.  More and more people are being treated using acupuncture than many other medical systems in the world.  Health is seen as having the right amount and smooth flow of energy, called qi.  Disease results when the qi becomes depleted or stuck.  Acupuncturists insert fine needles into
specific points in order to balance and replenish qi.

Treatment is generally painless; there may be a slight prick as the needle is inserted, with no further discomfort.  Sensations of warmth, tingling, or a sense of energy moving, or simply awareness of the needle can occur.  Acupuncture is simple, safe, and effective.
