Acupuncture is a therapy derived from Chinese Medicine in which very fine needles are inseacupuncturerted in specific points in the body with the purpose of treatment or prevention.

Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that energy or “life force” flows through the body’s energy channels, this life force is called Qi (pronounced chee).

Chinese Medicine posits that in perfect physical, emotional or psychological health, the energy (Qi) flows freely through the body’s energetic channels, illness manifesting when the energy is blocked.
