Acupuncture is a medical treatment that has been practiced in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years and around the world today. It is used to treat and prevent disease.
In acupuncture treatment, sterile and fine needles are placed at specific points (acupuncture points) along the body's meridians to remove energy blockages and increase the normal flow of energy through the individual. You can learn more about acupuncture & traditional Chinese medicine using various online resources.
The general theory of acupuncture is based on the assumption that there are patterns of energy flow through the body that are important for health. It is believed that this flow disruption is responsible for the disease.

Acupuncture corrects flow imbalances in identifiable places near the skin. Acupuncture is now an effective, natural, and increasingly popular form of health care that is used by people all over the world.
The acupuncture needle is so good that there is no discomfort when it is inserted, but a slight tingling sensation (known as a needle sensation) can occur. The needles are usually left for about twenty minutes or so. During this time there may be tension in the legs and a feeling of relaxation.
Because acupuncture treatment enhances the body's natural healing abilities, many conditions can be treated. It is also a comprehensive, preventive, and maintenance health care system.
