What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one form of traditional Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine believes in theory of balance (yin-yang theory). There are two opposing forces in the universe: yin and yang. When there is balance of forces the body is healthy and if imbalanced then body becomes unhealthy. Yin refers to negative, darkness, passive side and yang refers to sunny side, brighter, positive side. The yin and yang are kept in balance by the flow of energy “qi”.
