Traditional acupuncture involves needle insertion, moxibustion, and cupping therapy. It is a form of complementary and alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). According to TCM, stimulating specific acupuncture points corrects imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians.
Acupuncture aims to treat a range of conditions:
The number of treatments you may need depends upon the duration, severity, and nature of your ailment. You may need only a single treatment for an acute condition or a series of five to fifteen treatments may resolve a chronic problem. Some degenerative conditions may require many treatments over time, as well as Chinese herbs and lifestyle and dietary changes.
