7 Surprising Benefits Of

Traditional Acupuncture according to the British Acupuncture Council

Based on ancient principles which go back nearly three thousand years, acupuncture involves painlessly placing extremely fine, sterile needles at specific points on the body to trigger a healing response. Working on the basis of each body having its own energy flow known as qi 氣, Chinese medicine looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of an acupuncture treatment is to restore the body’s equilibrium but it also boasts numerous other health benefits.
