Acupuncture is a healthcare system originating from China based on ancient principles dating back nearly two thousand years. Traditional acupuncturists believe that the underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely and signal that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore the body’s equilibrium.
Acupuncture aims to treat a range of conditions, though is most commonly used for pain relief.
