Acupuncture involves the insertion of a very thing needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force- known as chi that flows through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needs into specific points along these meridians will allow your energy to flow and re-balance

Acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles and connective tissue can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow, while at the same time triggering the activity of the body's natural painkillers.

Each acupuncture needle produces a tiny injury at the insertion site, and although it's slight enough to cause little to no discomfort, it's enough of a signal to let body know it needs to respond. This response involves stimulation of the immune system, promoting circulation to the area, wound healing and pain modulation.
