The practice of acupuncture has its origins in China and was developed 5,000 years ago. These days it is very popular all over the world, representing one of the main pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine.###

Needles of various shapes are inserted into the skin with the aim to stimulate so called acupuncture points that allow direct influence in regards to the flow of Qi (or chi, which is energy). Qi runs in pathways or “meridians” through the body and is able to release blockages that can be the cause for several symptoms.
