what is acupuncture?

Acupuncture originated in China nearly 2500 years ago as a holistic therapy that uses very thin, flexible needles in specific points located on the body’s energy meridians. By stimulating acupuncture points, the flow of qi or “life force” can be changed and blockages can be dissolved.
The interaction between the acupuncture needles and pain receptors in your skin stimulate the release of endorphins. In addition, this medicine also affects emotional triggers in the brain’s limbic system and provides deep relaxation and a sustained feeling of well-being.
