Acupuncture has been an important part of medicine for thousands of years in China. The key principle that defines and connects all of Chinese medicine is the idea Chi, or vital energy that runs through the body. Acupuncture is used to re-balance the Chi. It involves inserting very thin, disposable needles into specific meridian points to help direct the body to a path of healing.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest practices of traditional Chinese medicine and has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions. Acupuncture points were developed over centuries and are mainly located in the meridian system of the body. Different acupuncture points in the body are stimulated to treat different symptoms and promote the body's natural healing abilities.
While traditional acupunture is used to treat body conditions, cosmetic acupuncture is used as an anti-aging treatment. Cosmetic acupunture is a safe alternative to invasive anti-aging treatments.
