Traditional acupuncture works to help maintain your body's equilibrium. Very fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of vital energy (known as Qi in Chinese).Qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, leading to pain and illness. Treatment aims to restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony. Recent research has found that acupuncture points can be seen using CT scans.
