Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that utilises small fine needles to stimulate the energy flow (called chi/qi) in the body. It has been utilised as a healing practice for thousands of years.
The purpose of the treatment is to restore energy and balance into the body by needling specific points and locations in the body. The needles rarely hurt but some discomfort can occur with insertion.
