A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is very effective in the treatment of pain.

Acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) flows through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians helps your energy flow re-balance.

The acupuncture points help to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation helps boosts your body's natural painkillers and increases blood flow.
