Acupuncture is a technique that involves the insertion of fine, disposable needles into specific points within the body. Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points within the body to stimulate the nervous system to produce chemicals and reactions in the body to promote wellbeing and good health. In the body energy called ‘Qi’ runs through the body in lines called meridians.
Acupuncture is a form of complementary and alternative medicine that originated in China. Its exact date of discovery is unknown but evidence suggests Acupuncture is at least 3,000 years in existence with the possibility that it can be dated back as far as the Stone Age when soldiers were injured by stone arrows and it was observed something else healed.
