Acupuncture is the main technique of Traditional Chinese medicine. The very fine, flexible needles can hardly be felt as they are inserted along the meridians of the body. A meridian is an energetic highway in the human body. Meridians allow for the flow of energy, known as Qi (pronounced “chee”) to circulate throughout the body. Acupuncture needles are placed in points along the meridians to balance and restore Qi and allow ideal flow of energy through the body to restore health.
Acupuncture has been shown to help the following conditions:
- Back pain
- Low immunity
- Cigarette addiction
