Acupuncture is an ancient holistic therapy which uses needles to unblock energy lines, also called meridians, in the body. There are many acupuncture points along the meridians which can be activated to help with specific health problems. According to Chinese Medicine the pathogenic influences of hot, cold, damp, wind, combined with trauma, stress, and the emotional response can cause disharmony in the body. Acupuncture points are then chosen according to these internal/external influences to help relieve the negative effects they have had.
