Acupuncture techniques involve stimulating specific points on the body using thin, stainless steel needles. These acupuncture points are located along numerous channels or pathways, where energy or Qi circulates in the body. Qi, thought to nourish internal organs and tissues, can alter neural impulses that travel through the body to elicit beneficial responses. By stimulating acupuncture points with specific functions and indications, acupuncturists are able to promote and balance the flow of Qi, relieve pain, reduce stress and restore health.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 2,500 years.

In the United States, some 10,000 practitioners serve more than 1 million patients each year.
