Acupuncture is a medical practice that has been used for thousands of years in China to treat a wide range of illnesses. It is based on the concept that there is a natural balance in our bodies that can be disrupted by illness. Acupuncture uses needles in specific meridians to redirect the energy of the body and help it achieve balance again.
