Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice that has been used for thousands of years to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms. From a longevity perspective acupuncture gives insight and guidance on life’s journey when we have periods of great health and stability as well as face the inevitable realities of tough transitions, illness, and longings during various stages of life. The Classics of Chinese Medicine refer to acupuncture as a pivot or axis to move qi (the soul) within the waterways of the body – known as channels or meridians. The tool, the acupuncture needle, acts as a compass, bringing direction and moving energy throughout the body. Through specific anatomical points, acupuncture reduces pain and helps the body restore balance.
