Acupuncture Acupuncture is a treatment procedure used to
balance the internal flow of Qi by inserting very fine needles into precise
acupuncture points along the different meridians. Method of treatment and
selection of acupuncture points are based on proper diagnosis and treatment
principles according to the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
During a typical treatment, the practitioner may insert ten to twenty
needles. The procedure usually causes little discomfort, although the patient
may feel tingling or a sensation of heaviness in the area of insertion.
