Acupuncture originated in China over 2000 years ago. The word acupuncture in itself already describes the therapy, as it means to puncture with needles. In a typical acupuncture therapy session, skinny needles are inserted into the skin at certain acupuncture points.
The reasons behind this is that by inserting those needles at certain points of the body, blocked energy pathways (the meridians) are relieved of their blockage and energy (the Chi) is allowed to flow freely and to rebalance. An experienced and formally trained acupuncturist can perform therapy with needles that is practically pain free. Bodyworkz is proud to be providing Gilbert acupuncture treatments in our office.
