Acupuncture is Chinese medicine. It consists in introducing fine needles into the skin along the meridians to rebalance the body’s energies. A meridian is a virtual energy channel, it is identified on a meridian map.

According to Chinese medicine, the Qi or vital energy circulates in the body with the blood, body fluids, spirit, and essences.

These substances maintain the balance within the body around the notion of Yin and Yang.  When Qi is blocked, absent, or too abundant, symptoms may appear.

Acupuncture is then used to regulate these energies and comes as a complement to the classical medicine and other therapies.
