Chinese healing technique that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to promote natural healing, alleviate pain, and improve overall well-being.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice of inserting needles into specific points on the body to manipulate the flow of energy or qi (pronounced “chi”). The foundation of acupuncture is the idea that qi is an essential substance in the human body. Qi maintains the body's vital activity, and any changes to that vitality is due to changes in the flow of qi.

In China, traditional Chinese medicine is one of the primary modality practiced in hospitals to treat many ailments including, chronic and acute pain, neurological disorders, behavioral disorders, respiratory disorders, digestive disorders, urinary and reproductive disorders,immune function, addictions, eye and ear disorders, depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

Chinese medicine is based on the concept that symptoms are expressions of the imbalance of qi, and in order to address those imbalances, the underlying cause needs to be resolved. While most people are familiar with acupuncture, there are many other modalities within traditional Chinese medicine.
