Acupuncture is an important element within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and have been for thousands of years.
Acupuncture uses fine needles, placed at specific acupuncture points in the body to rebalance the flow of energy (Qi) in order to regulate the body's functions in a harmonious manner, which is helpful for stress relief and improved wellbeing. This allows the body's natural healing mechanisms to work their best.
Like massage therapy, acupuncture is great for reducing muscle tension, promoting relaxation, as well as for treating certain injuries. Acupuncture furthermore encourages blood flow to certain areas of the body.
