What is Acupuncture?

During acupuncture, some thin needles are inserted into specific places on the body. Originating from traditional Chinese medicine, it is primarily used to alleviate pain but is also gaining recognition for its role in promoting overall wellness, including stress relief. In practices of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture’s goal is to bring balance to energy, known as qi or chi, via pathways in the body called meridians. Western practitioners often view acupuncture points as areas that stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue, potentially enhancing the body's natural pain-relieving mechanisms.
