The study of Acupuncture is a type of Chinese medicine that uses fine needles that are used to provide healing to a person’s body. Sometimes these needles contain electrodes to stimulate the areas of the body that need healing.
Acupuncture is at least a 3,000 (some say 5,000 years) old practice based on the theory that a body has an energy force called the Qi (pronounced “Chee”) that runs through it. This energy force called Qi is meant to work in line with the Yin and the Yang. When the flow of the Qi is interrupted then the balance of the Ying and the Yang is disrupted. These points are restored by the use of the practice of acupuncture.
