Acupuncture is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine that involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the human body.
The human body is traversed by channels that connect all structures and systems within the body. In these channels are the acupuncture points. Qi energy circulates in these canals called meridians in a continuous and fluid way.

Every time there is an impediment in your circulation, due to blockage, lack or excess of energy, disease arises. Acupuncture seeks to re-establish the circulation of energy and remove any blockages in order to allow the body to regain its balance.
