Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that balances the flow of energy or qi through the body’s energy pathways – known as meridians. It involves the insertion of very thin filiform needles into specific points (where qi is concentrated) on the meridians in order to rebalance the energy flow, stimulate healing and promote relaxation. Most patients feel relaxed and refreshed after acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture is best known for treating pain however it is also commonly used to treat sleeping disorders and stress management.
