What is Acupcunture?

Acupuncture is an ancient treatment, derived from traditional chinese medicine (TCM) using small acupuncture needles and specific acu points on the body to restore the body’s natural energy flow, called Chi. TCM uses specific acu points along meridians (energy lines) in the body to restore Chi and allow the body to heal itself.
