The history of acupuncture dates back thousands of years and is taking its origins in China, making it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world. Its Effectiveness and benefits are now accepted in different countries including Europe, USA and Canada. Acupuncture treatment consists in insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points along the body's meridians. Stimulating specific acupuncture points may correct imbalances of the Qi (pronounced as “Chee’’ and translated as energy) flow and remove blockages.
