Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine which uses the conductive power of metal needles, inserted at specific energy points within the body, to re-balance a person’s energy flow and field.
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and is strongly connected with Taoist traditions. While science does not really understand why acupuncture works, its effectiveness has been repeatedly documented for treating a wide variety of ailments. Acupuncture works by using needles to stimulate the energy of very specific points of the body in order to rebalance the parts of the body associated with those points. Many people use acupuncture on a regular basis as a form of preventive medicine, as it aids in rebalancing. Due to this widely demonstrated efficacy, some insurance companies will even cover it, and people can submit it for flex spending as well.
