Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment originating from ancient Chinese medicine in which fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for treatment or prevention of various conditions.

The treatment seems to work by stimulating nerves under the skin and in muscle tissue. This results in the body producing pain-relieving substances, such as endorphins. Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or “life force”, flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi (pronounced “chee”).

The traditional beliefs about acupuncture consider that when Qi does not flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. They also believe acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi, thus improving or restoring good health.
