Acupuncture can ease, even cure, symptoms such as back pain, headaches, stress and more. Therapists insert fine acupuncture needles into various points along the body and leave them for a short time. Acupuncture is based on the idea of qi or vital energy, which is thought to move along energy pathways in the body, which are known as meridians. Acupuncturists believe health depends on the flow of this qi, which can be disturbed by many factors, physical and emotional. The idea is that fine acupuncture needles, inserted into these energy channels can release blockages and help restore our body's natural balance and energy flow. Acupuncture can be used for relaxation and also to clear and sharpen the mind.
