Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves the insertion of fine sterile disposable needles into selected acupuncture points of the body. These points are located along channels of energy, called meridians, which run through the body and over its surface. Meridians are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these rivers is like a dam that backs up into others causing symptoms, pain and disease.
