Acupuncture is a technique utilizing fine sterile disposable stainless steel needles inserted at specific points in the body to cause a positive response in order to correct various ailments. The ancient chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called qi (pronounce "chi") that is present in every living being. This energy circulates throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. A person's health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of qi.
