What is Acupuncture? How does it work?

It's a powerful tool to promote health and generate more
self-awareness. It's a safe and effective treatment for many illnesses.
In Chinese medicine, health is seen as having the right balance of
life force called Qi. Ideally, Qi flows smoothly and evenly throughout
the body nourishing each cell, organ and tissue. When Qi becomes stuck
or depleted, pain and illness can result. Acupuncture involves
inserting fine needles into key points on the body along our energy
pathways to move, restore, nourish and balance Qi.
