Originating in China over 3,000 years ago, acupuncture has been used on millions of people worldwide to treat illnesses and injuries, prevent the recurrence of illnesses and improve overall health. By improving the functioning of the body's immune and organ systems acupuncture helps to return balance by allowing the body's energy, or Qi, to flow smoothly. Acupuncturists hold to the belief that energy flows in channels, or meridians, throughout the body and that 71 meridians have been identified in the human body that comprises and energy map for all people. Each of the major organs in the body is associated with its own meridian and the internal organs are connected to certain parts of the body including muscles, bones and joints. By inserting fine needles into the right meridians acupuncture aims to remove blocks that may be occurring so the Qi can flow properly and return the body to a normal state of health.

While not every medical practitioner believes in the healing power of acupuncture recent studies have clearly shown that acupuncture needles cause a physical stimulus in the body and that when the body detects change it produces a response. This response leads some to believe that acupuncture is in fact stimulating the central nervous system and causing it to release pain-relieving chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord and brain. If this is true than acupuncture will in fact relieve many painful conditions including chronic back pain, migraine headaches and neck pain.
