Acupuncture stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been in use for thousands of years around the globe. Acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for the disease. Acupuncture may correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin. It is a relatively pain-free procedure and involves gentle and shallow insertion of a needle into the skin.
