Acupuncture therapy is one of the most popular forms of holistic therapeutic techniques.

We know it can appear terrifying at first; after all, it involves someone inserting needles into your skin.

How is that possibly supposed to make you feel better? Does it hurt?

Anyone booking an acupuncture therapy session for the first time might ask these questions.

Let us assure you this procedure relieves pain and is known to help balance vital energy.

Here’s a deeper look at all the benefits of acupuncture therapy.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture therapy is a holistic healing technique where a professional acupuncturist inserts needles into specific skin regions to stimulate sensory nerves. This practice has been widely used to improve a range of health conditions for over 2,500 years.

Acupuncture advocates believe that an imbalance of vital energy or “Qi” results in illnesses. Without a correct flow of Qi throughout the body, the body’s natural healing processes get disturbed, which can lead to certain ailments.

Acupuncture therapy restores this energy balance and stimulates the immune system to promote circulation, help manage pain, and heal wounds.
