What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It’s based on the theory that energy, called “chi”, flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians.
Acupuncture is done by putting very thin needles into your skin at certain points on your body. This is done to influence the energy flow.
You may feel slight pressure when a needle goes in. Most people find that it doesn’t hurt. The area may tingle, feel numb, itch, or be a little sore. Providers believe that this is a sign that the energy flow, or chi, has been accessed.
