What is Acupuncture?
Originating in China over 5,000 years ago, acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine used to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as to promote health and well-being. This is done by inserting very fine needles at precise points, with the purpose of modifying the flow of energy (Qi or Chi) through the body.

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO), acupuncture has proven effective in the treatment of many common problems including those listed below:
