What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment that has been used for more than 2,500 years and remains popular worldwide. This modality is one of the treatments within Traditional Chinese Medicine and is based on returning the body to balance. This healthy state of balance is between the forces of yin and yang. Many of the conditions that contribute to this unbalance are the result of a blocked energy within the internal organs.
This energy is known as qi (pronounced “chee”) and circulates throughout the system. The purpose of acupuncture is to unblock the qi and restore balance to the system.
Western physicians and researchers are recognizing the benefits of acupuncture in the treatment of several conditions. It also is used as a complement to traditional medical treatments.
