Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.
The advantage of this method is in the treatment of disease without side effects caused by drugs. Apart from its healing potential, an unquestionable and well-known property of acupuncture, is the treatment of pain and analgesic effect.
It is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
