Acupuncture, existing for thousands of years, is the insertion of a hair-thin needle into a specific point of energy (Qi) on the body to simulate a physiological change. It increases circulation, stimulates the body to release corticosteroids (the body’s own anti-inflammatory) and endorphins (the body’s own pain relievers). Acupuncture stimulates the body’s self-healing mechanisms.
Acupuncture is energy medicine. Life energy permeates the human body, circulating through specific energetic pathways called meridians or channels. These pathways are linked via hundreds of points on the surface of the body through which this energy can be accessed and influenced.
