Acupuncture is a type of alternative medicine that aids the body in healing. Our bodies are full of electrical energy that sometimes gets "blocked" and needs to be freed. Imagine a garden hose that has a "kink" in it and doesn't allow the water to flow fully. The same concept can happen with our own electrical current. Acupuncture is a way to "undo the kink" in the electrical flow of our body. These electrical flows are called meridians. When there is an imbalance or a blockage in a meridian, many health problems can occur. Using acupuncture the body can heal faster and restore balance.
