Acupuncture and Acupressure
Looking for acupuncture treatment for pain, natural relief of low back pain, arthritis, headaches, other pain-causing conditions, or acupuncture for fertility & infertility? Consider trying acupuncture. Acupuncture originated in China over 5,000 years ago. It is based on the belief that health is determined by a balanced flow of Qi, the vital life energy present in all living organisms. According to acupuncture theory, Qi is circulated in the body along fourteen energy pathways, called meridians, each linked to specific internal organs and organ systems. There are over one thousand acupoints within the meridian system that can be stimulated to enhance the flow of Qi. When special acupuncture needles are inserted into these acupoints (just under the skin), they help correct and rebalance the flow of energy and consequently restore health and avoid pain.
