What is acupuncture?

Last Updated: December 5, 2022

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that has been practiced in China for thousands of years. It is based on the belief that a life force, or energy, called qi flows through the body along pathways known as meridians. Acupuncturists insert thin needles into specific points along these pathways to unblock and redirect the flow of qi. This is thought to bring balance to the body and mind, and to restore health. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of physical and mental health conditions, including pain, digestive issues, anxiety, and depression. It is considered a safe and effective form of treatment, and is used by many people around the world.
