An introduction to Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient traditional Chinese medicine method, that seeks to balance and restore the body's health through the insertion of small pointed needles into meridians or energy points on the body. The photo above illustrates a meridian map of the head where acupuncture points are shown as red dots. In the U.S.A. Acupuncture is considered an alternative medicine and is not generally covered by insurance. With growing popularity and positive results, Acupuncture is slowly gaining credibility in the modern medicine world.
