Acupuncture is a modality in Traditional Chinese Medicine that dates back to over 4,000 years. Acupuncture has been developed by following energy (qi) or circulatory pathways in the body, called channels. Each channel correlates to a certain organ system which travels or maps across the human body. When qi is stuck in a channel it will cause pain and disease in that organ system. In placing needles in specific acupuncture points on the channels it will allow the dramatic shift in speed and recourse of qi circulating through the body. As a whole when being treated with acupuncture there will be points chosen directly near the pain as well as distal.
