Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points on the body by the insertion of thin, disposable needles at points where energy is concentrated and linked to the organs in the body. It is intended to remove blockages in the flow of Qi (Chee - the body’s vital energy) and restore and maintain health.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is among the oldest healing practices in the world. It is a medical system that originated in China and it is based on the concept that disease results from disruption in the flow of Qi and imbalance in the forces of yin and yang. A traditional acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of Qi to restore balance and trigger the body's natural healing response. It is used to preserve health as well as to treat illness. It can treat a wide range of conditions.
In an official report, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials, the World Health Organization (WHO) has listed the following symptoms and conditions shown to be treated effectively by acupuncture:
*Gynaecological Disorders, such as irregular, heavy, or painful menstruation, infertility in women and men and premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
