Acupuncture has been practiced in China for more than 5,000 years. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical technique for unblocking qi by inserting needles at particular acupoints on the body to balance the opposing forces of yin and yang. Qi is an energy that allegedly permeates all things. It is believed to flow through the body along 14 main pathways called meridians. When yin and yang are in harmony the qi flows freely within the body and a person is healthy. When a person is sick, diseased, or injured, there is an obstruction of qi along one or more of these meridians. Traditional Chinese medicine has identified some 500 specific points where needles are inserted for specific effects.
Acupuncture is able to improve our health and illness by stimulating certain acupuncture points which are on body "meridian systems". Traditionally these areas or acupoints are stimulated by thin fine sterile needles.
Many other forms of alternative therapies can be incorporated into an acupuncture treatment, including the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine, electro-stimulation, moxa (heat), cupping, massage and lasers.
