How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin, to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions. – National Center for Complimentary & Integrative Health
The Qi, the vital energy that flows through the body, can be balanced using acupuncture. By balancing the qi, acupuncturists are able to reduce symptoms and long-term or chronic fatigue.
Although the idea of a bunch of needles poking into your body seems scary there is a very little to no chance these are painful and much less cause discomfort.
