Acupuncture has ancient Chinese origins and is based around a unique theoretical concept.
Acupuncture involves the placement of very fine needles in specific locations throughout the body. These specific locations have been determined over many centuries of practice. Acupuncture can assist the flow of energy through specific channels and have many neurophysiological effects, one of which is decreasing pain. Additionally, it can stimulate the release of your body's natural chemicals and help increase the speed of healing.
