Acupuncture treatment is one of the oldest healing modalities in the world. In traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is rooted in the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy, or qi, in our body. Acupuncturists insert hair-thin needles to specific acupuncture points throughout the body to restore the flow of qi, balance the body’s energy, stimulate healing, and promote relaxation.
