Acupuncture is a form of therapy that has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to promote health, treat disease, and alleviate pain. It involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body, known as acupuncture points, which are believed to correspond to different organs and systems in the body.

In TCM, acupuncture is based on the concept of qi (life force) and the meridian system, which are believed to be the channels through which qi flows in the body. By stimulating the acupuncture points, the flow of qi can be regulated and balanced, which can help to restore health and alleviate symptoms.


Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health conditions, including pain, digestive disorders, respiratory problems, menstrual issues, and mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression. It is often used in combination with other TCM modalities, such as herbal medicine, dietary therapy, and breathing exercises, to enhance its therapeutic effect.


Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy when performed by a qualified and licensed practitioner. The needles used in acupuncture are very fine and typically cause little to no pain, and the treatment is generally well-tolerated by most people. It is a holistic approach to health and well-being that considers the whole person, rather than just their symptoms, and can provide long-lasting benefits for both physical and emotional health.
