Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It's based on the theory that energy, called qi ("chee"), flows through and around the body along pathways called meridians.

It is used for the prevention of disease and dysfunction, constitutional imbalances, relief of headaches and tension, strengthened immunity, increased focus and energy, lowering stress and anxiety, improvement of sleep, reduction of allergies and asthma, and maximizing over-all well being.

Traditional Chinese Medical practitioners believe that illness occurs when qi is blocked or imbalanced. Giving acupuncture treatment is a way to influence qi and help it flow back into balance.
