Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body. It is based on the belief that the body has energy channels, or meridians, that can become blocked or imbalanced, leading to pain and illness. By stimulating these points with needles, acupuncture is thought to restore the flow of energy and promote healing. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat pain, anxiety, depression, and other conditions.
