Acupuncture has been used as a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for many years, and is especially effective for the relief of acute or chronic pain and prevention or treatment of various diseases.
It involves the painless insertion of ultra-thin single use needles into specific points on the body called acupoints, to "re-balance" the flow of the body's energy. Your body's energy, commonly known as 'Chi', should flow freely and unobstructed. If there are blockages in this flow, illness may arise and by re-establishing good energy flow, the body can begin to heal itself and restore health.
