Acupuncture Health: Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine healthcare practice. It is believed to have originated at least 3,000 years ago. The first known description dates to 100 B.C.E.

Practitioners use thin needles to pierce the skin in specific locations on the body. This is believed to restore balance in the body’s energy to decrease or alleviate symptoms. The needles are activated with the practitioner’s hands or with electrical stimulation. There are approximately 2,000 acupuncture points that are connected to specific meridians/energy pathways that flow through the body.

Acupuncture’s health benefits may include pain management, stress relief, and physical and emotional well-being. Traditional Chinese medicine is based on the idea that a blockage or disturbance in the flow of the body’s life energy, or qi, can cause health issues.
