What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in which thin needles are inserted into the body. The Chinese believe acupuncture balances the body’s ‘qi’ energy, which supports good health, pain relief, and helps heal illnesses. Western studies have indicated acupuncture can help to improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, release endorphins (the body’s own pain killers) and stimulate the part of the brain associated with rest and restoration. Acupuncture is considered a safe and effective treatment for a variety of health conditions when administered by a trained acupuncturist.
