Acupuncture originated in China as a pillar of Traditional Chinese Medicine over 3,000 years ago. In TCM philosophy, acupuncture is used to restore health and well-being by inserting fine, sterile needles into specific points of the body that control the flow of “Qi” energy.
Qi energy moves along pathways in a network called meridians to link all the different systems together in the body. When there is a blockage of Qi, the body loses its state of balance and disease develops. Acupuncture aims to treat the body as a whole; unblocking stagnant Qi and promoting full body balance.
