In Asian medical practice, acupuncture treats illness and provides local anesthesia by the insertion of needles at specified sites of the body. The practice can be traced back to the Stone Age. Sharpened stones dating back to 3000 B.C. have been found at excavation sites in Asia.
The medicine traces its foundation to the idea that the body has a condition of balance: the yin and yang. Acupuncture seeks to control the flow of Qi, our inner immaterial energy, to place the yin and yang into balance.
Acupuncture is a completely safe method that uses sterile stainless steel needles much thinner than the ones used to give shots, thus being less painful. Side effects to acupuncture are very low and safer than most modern forms of treatment.
