What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture was developed in China over 2,500 years ago to treat illness and prevent disease. Thin, sterile, disposable needles are inserted in precise acupuncture points to promote the movement of the body’s natural energy or qi (pronounced CHEE). Needling these points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals that, in turn, stimulate the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals reduce pain and inflammation.
