Before we begin a discussion about the benefits of acupuncture, let’s talk about the origins of acupuncture.
It was first used in China over 2000 years ago, and is one of the oldest medical procedures in the world.
It is a family of procedures that stimulates the anatomy of the body and helps to balance the energy flow throughout the body.

They are known as the Yin and Yang of the entire person. The Yin is representative of the cold, slow, or passive principle, and yang represents the hot, excited or active principle.
