Acupuncture: What it is and what are its Benefits

What is acupuncture?   

Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of alternative medicine in Chinese history. The philosophy of acupuncture is based on the “Taoist Tradition” where these people meditate and observe the flow of positive energy inside and outside the body. Acupuncture has evolved over the years, but the concept and philosophy remain the same.

Acupuncture works through physiological and energetic mechanisms. The energy mechanism is the balance of the channels or meridians through which the energy is transferred from one part to another of the body.  Although the benefits of acupuncture have long been proven it is essential that the technique is performed by a qualified professional.
