Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world and is now a thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected complementary medicine. Acupuncturists use Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. According to TCM, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). These pathways are a like mapping system of the body and acupuncturists use a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to access and use this system to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. This re-balances the physiology of your naturally existing health regulatory systems. The World Health Organization evaluated research data collected from acupuncture clinical trials and identified a variety of conditions where acupuncture has a proven benefit.
