handWhat is Acupuncture?

Traditional Acupuncture originates in China and has been practiced for nearly 2000 years. It’s principle theory is that health is governed by the flow of energy, or Qi (pronounced “Chee”). When we are unwell or injured, the flow of Qi has been disrupted and needs to be restored. This can be done by inserting fine needles into specific points on the body.
