Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. Acupuncture uses needles placed along invisible meridians that run throughout the body. Each meridian point has a specific meaning and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with vital energy or chi. Through the stimulation of the meridians, an acupuncturist is able to restore balance and ergo health to the patient. Early Chinese physicians discovered there is an energy below the skins surface which commnicates with the bodies organs, structures, and over 361 points in the body. This energy works in harmony with the body's circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and other systems of the body. With Acupuncture stimulation of one or a combination of key points on the body may restore harmony to the body.
