As a popular component of traditional Chinese medicine that has been around more than 2,500 years, acupuncture divides your body into a series of zones and pressure points. Very thin needles are inserted into different pressure points on your body, depending on your symptoms. These needle points are usually near nerves in your body. The needle stimulates the nerves to release the flow of the body's vital energy or "chi" by boosting blood flow and endorphins (which are considered natural painkillers). This stimulation of your immune and circulation system removes negative energy that is causing you pain, restores the flow of positive energy throughout your body, thereby triggering a healing response. Acupuncture treatments are used for a variety of conditions such as allergies, anxiety and depression migraines, osteoarthritis, chronic pain, hypertension, insomnia, morning sickness, menstrual cramps and PMS and migraines.
