Acupuncture inserts fine needles into the human body at carefully chosen locations with techniques that involve turning, heating and sometimes sending low electronic current stimulants. The theory supporting Chinese Medicine involves adjusting the movement of energy (qi) along pathways called meridians, each of which is linked with specific organs. Various health problems such as pain are thought to be the result of the interrupted flow or imbalance of this energy.Acupuncture effectively restores the proper and balanced energy flow which leads to good health.

Although slight discomfort may occasionally be felt upon insertion of the needles, the treatment is virtually painless. The needles may be left in place anywhere from a few minutes to a half an hour. Acupuncture treatment can have very quick results for acute illnesses, such as the pain caused by bladder stones.For most chronic conditions such as strokes, acupuncture works slowly and can typically takes months to a year to treat symptoms.
