Acupuncture is a complementary approach that has a scientific background. Its use dates back more than 2000 years, with people often turning to the ancient drug-free treatment for improved health and wellbeing.
One of the most important concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine is that of Qi, the vital force or energy that flows through a system of channels in the body known as the Meridians. The goal of acupuncture is to establish healthy body function by restoring the natural circulation of energy, or Qi.
In simple terms, by inserting fine needles into specific energetic points on the Meridian paths (the body’s energy channels, the energy flow of Qi may be stimulated, removing the blockages that can lead to pain and other symptoms.
No, acupuncture is not considered to be painful. The insertion of the needles into the acupuncture points is not a painful process since the needles are very fine. Sometimes you may feel a slight tingling, or an electric sensation as the needle enters the skin, but over time and through regular treatments, acupuncture can become relaxing.
Acupuncture may assist with symptoms such as muscle and joint pain, skin complaints, headaches, and low mood, among others.
