WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

Acupuncture is the ancient chinese form of medicine. According to ancient Chinese theory, health is determined by "chi", the vital life energy. This energy flows through body along pathways called meridians, each of which is linked to a specific organ. If the flow of energy is balanced, the individual has good health. If this flow is interrupted, various problems occur. Acupuncture restores health by restoring the normal flow of "chi".

Here, needles are inserted at specific points on the body to cure a particular disease.

The needle insertion is usually painless though a slight discomfort may be felt. The needles are usually left in place or few minutes to half an hour. Relief may be obtained in one sitting or after several sittings.
