Acupuncture has a documented history dating back to ancient China over 4000 years ago. The theory is based on treating the internal energy (qi). The Ancient Chinese mapped out the flow of qi through the body into 14 meridians (energy pathways). Recently, electromagnetic research has confirmed the existence of the qi pathways.

Pain is essentially a blockage in the flow energy within the body. By stimulating acupuncture points, blockages can be opened to restore and rebalance the proper flow of qi.
