Acupuncture was developed over 5000 years ago in China. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture stimulates the movement qi (energy) in the body by inserting very thin, sterile needles at specific meridian points. When the body is healthy, qi flows smoothly and without blockage. Symptoms of illness manifest when the flow of qi is obstructed or the body is unbalanced. By stimulating specific energetic pathways, acupuncture can balance the body and induce healing.]
