Acupuncture has been helping people for a long time and has been becoming more widespread and popular in the US in the last 20 years. An estimated 2.1 million Americans used acupuncture last year alone. Acupuncture is an ancient healing art based on inserting sterile needles into strategic points on the body that lie along specific energy meridian pathways. It is a non-invasive therapy that has been used to treat a number of conditions.
There are 20 acupuncture channels and about 365 acupuncture points that are located across the human body. When blockages or obstructions occur in these channels, pain and illness can often occur. Acupuncture points used on these channels give specific messages to the body to redirect its normal functioning again. Our bodies are inherently built to know what to do and how to heal. The needle works with the body to help this happen.
