Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are placed at specific points in the body. It’s primarily used to relieve pain but also has been used to treat other conditions.
Pain considers qi( your body’s natural energy) not flowing or stagnating in traditional Chinese medicine. With treatment most pain syndromes can be reduced or eliminated. People will see faster resolution with acute injury, often responding in the first treatment. More than 3 million Americans use acupuncture.
