Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used to treat a wide range of conditions. Acupuncture originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. Acupuncture is a procedure in which thin, small needles are inserted through the skin and stimulate specific points on the body which intern removes blockages in the flow of qi.
Qi is translated loosely as the flow of vital energy through pathways or meridians in the body. By inserting needles into specific points along these pathways it is believed the body's energy flow will re-balance.
