Although it is fascinating to know that acupuncture has evolved over thousands of years, all that is eclipsed by how useful this style of medicine is proving to be now, in the present day. Because ofits ingenious practical application, people from all walks of life are turning to acupuncture to find solutions to both physical and emotional conditions. There is good, old-fashioned common sense running through the theory and practice of acupuncture, based on natural patterns.
Some people turn to acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition. Others choose to have treatment to help maintain good health, as a preventive measure, or to improve their general senseof wellbeing. Traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation. Acupuncture works to help maintain your body's balance. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Qi.
