What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing practice that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body.
It is based on the belief that energy flows through channels called meridians, and imbalances in this energy can lead to health issues. By stimulating these points, acupuncture aims to restore the balance of energy and promote healing.
It is commonly used for pain management, stress reduction, and improving overall well-being. The needles used are very thin and are typically inserted just beneath the skin, causing minimal discomfort.
Acupuncture is often used in combination with other traditional Chinese medicine practices, such as herbal medicine and cupping therapy, to provide holistic care.
Scientific studies have shown promising results in the effectiveness of acupuncture for various conditions, making it a popular alternative therapy worldwide.
