Acupuncture is a traditional form of medicine that originated in China over 2,500 years ago. It involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to restore the balance and flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”). Qi refers to the body's vital energy or life force. When Qi is flowing freely and in balance, the body is healthy and in a state of harmony. However, if Qi becomes blocked or stagnant, this can lead to pain, illness, or other health problems.
