Acupuncture

Acupuncture aims to restore health and well-being and treats pain and imbalances in the body. Sterile, disposable needles are inserted to different depths on the skin and are turned or left in place for 15-30 minutes.

Practitioners of acupuncture may also use heat, pressure, suction and electromagnetic impulses (electroacupuncture) to stimulate the points.

 
In general, treatments aim to restore the body’s energy flow (Qi) resulting in balancing the body. Acupuncture appears to increase levels of the body’s natural pain killers and stimulates blood flow.


The practice of acupuncture most likely originated in China and can be traced as far back as the Stone Age when sharpened stones and bone needles were used. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes in the presence of 12 primary pathways (meridians) passing throughout the body and on which most acupuncture points are located. These meridians were mapped out by carefully recording superficial sensations created by the stimulation of acupuncture points in the skin.
