Finding Your Energy Flow with acupuncture

This ancient Chinese healing technique has become significantly mainstream in recent years. During an acupuncture session, long, thin needles are inserted into meridians, or energy centers, just under the skin—to not only stimulate the body’s qi, or energy flow, but to treat a number of medical ailments; studies show acupuncture can help with addiction, allergies, fertility, gastrointestinal issues, headaches, insomnia, stress and more.
