Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very thin needles through the dermis (skin) at specific points on your body, which is a central practice of traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, but is now widely being used for overall wellness, including stress management.

Traditional Chinese medicine employs acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force “qi” (chee), believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in a person’s body. By inserting needles into strategic points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that one’s energy flow will re-balance.

Acupuncture is mainly used to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of conditions and diseases, including:

  • Headaches, including tension headaches and migraines
  • Dental pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chemotherapy-induced and postoperative nausea and vomiting
  • Tennis and Golfer’s elbow
  • Labor pain
  • Respiratory disorders, such as allergic rhinitis
