It is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that involves the application of slim, one-time-use needles to specific areas, called acupoints.

Acupuncture has proven beneficial in relieving acute and chronic pain, digestive disorders, fatigue, migraines, anxiety and stress, insomnia, asthma and seasonal allergies, neurological problems, morning sickness and much more.
