What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture, a cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine, involves the insertion of small needles into specific points along muscles, nerves, tendons, or fascia to rebalance the body’s qi—its vital energy that flows through meridians.

The origins of acupuncture trace back to China’s Stone Age, with documented practices appearing in the “Huang Di Nei Jing,” a pivotal text from around the 2nd century B.C. Over the past 2000 years, acupuncture theories have continually evolved and refined. Before the widespread adoption of Western medicine in the 20th century, both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine were integral components of the ancient Chinese healthcare system.

How does acupunture work?

Acupuncture enhances the body’s natural healing abilities, facilitating a return to balance (homeostasis) and promoting improved circulation of blood and oxygen.
Through precise insertion into specific points along meridians—channels through which qi flows—acupuncture corrects imbalances caused by stress, trauma, or unhealthy lifestyles that hinder qi flow.By stimulating these points, acupuncturists regulate qi flow to harmonize Yin and Yang, promoting optimal health.
