Acupuncture is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment with a very low risk of side-effects. It uses very fine, sterile, disposable needles, which are inserted just below the surface of the skin. This does not cause pain, although you may feel a qi sensation.
When the needles penetrate the skin, qi is stimulated. Stimulated qi will move, and blood will flow after qi.
Acupuncture corrects qi and blood stagnation, and therefore relieves pain. The aim of acupuncture is to help qi and blood flow harmoniously through the body, thus nourishing the body and bringing it back into balance.
