What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting needles into specific points on the body in order to solve physical ailments, illness, and pain. The basic premise of acupuncture is that the body will restore itself to health under the right circumstances. This treatment is a method of assisting the body in healing itself and restoring to perfect health.

The science behind acupuncture can become quite complex. The specific points on the body correlate to meridians, which are pathways for Qi (i.e. life energy) to pass through the body. The energy can become blocked, which causes disease, pain, and other physical ailments. Needles are used at strategic points in order to remove the blockage and correct energy flow. Once corrected, the body will be able to restore itself to health.
