Acupuncture is a technique of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into “acupuncture points” on the body with the aim of restoring health and well-being e.g. treating pain and diseases. Although sometimes described merely as a means of pain relief traditional acupuncture is actually used to treat people with a wide range of illnesses. Its focus is on improving the overall wellbeing of the patient rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms.
The ancient Chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called Chi or Qi present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways that are called meridians. Acupuncture works to re-program and restore normal functions by stimulating certain points on the meridians in order to free up the Chi energy.
Acupuncture originated in China although it has also been used in other East Asian countries. Evidence suggests that acupuncture was practiced as long as 2000 years ago
