Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese Medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as Gi or Chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. Where there is pain, there is a blockage in the flow of Qi and blood. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, your energy flow will re-balance.
