“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth” – The Buddha
Acupuncture is one of the main branches of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the others being herbal medicine and Tuina (Chinese massage). As a therapeutic technique, it is used to restore health and well being to the body-mind. Acupuncture theory holds that we each have an energy force running throughout us. This energy force is known as “Qi”. In China, the practice of acupuncture can be traced to the 1st millennium BC.
