What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest methods of Traditional Eastern Medicine used in preventing, managing, and healing of the body and mind. Acupuncture practitioners stimulate specific points on the body, most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. By inserting the needles in specific areas, acupuncture regulates the flow of qi (vital energy or blood) along the pathways known as meridians, which help manage and treat pain. In recent research done by American Pain Society and the American College of Physicians, acupuncture is one of several therapies used to manage pain.
