Acupuncture is an ancient treatment which is based on the balancing of the bodies meridians (pathways). It is believed that the imbalance of energy (chi), in these pathways, leads to poor health and certain conditions. This balance can be restored by stimulating certain points on the meridian pathways. This stimulation can be accomplished in various ways including pressure, electrical, laser, and needles.
