Acupuncture can help remove blockages and restore proper energy flow. It is one of the oldest, most widely used medical procedures in the world. Studies in humans and animals indicate that traditional Chinese acupuncture may stimulate the production of endorphins (our bodies' own painkillers) in the brain, spinal cord and pituitary gland.
Acupuncture treatment consists of the insertion of sterile, wire-thin needles along specific points on the body.
