What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a modality of treatment from a 2500+ year old system of medicine originated in ancient China, called “Traditional Chinese Medicine” (TCM). In recent years, this time-honored healing art has gained wide acceptance as a powerful complement to conventional modern medicine. An acupuncturist will place fine, sterile, disposable needles at specific acupoints on the body. This activates the body Qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity and physical and emotional health. The National Institute of Health, the World Health Organization, and other national and international health and medical bodies have come to integrate and promote acupuncture as a safe, effective, and low-cost method of treatment for a wide variety of disorders.
