The 8 Benefits of Acupuncture

Posted by Anabel Castilla on June 6th, 2021

According to traditional Chinese medicine, pain and disease originate as a result of an imbalance between the two forces that direct the human body, ying and yang ; and this imbalance blocks the flow of life energy, or qi .

Acupuncture involves inserting very fine needles into the skin to stimulate specific points on the body to heal or alleviate an ailment and restore well-being. Its use is increasingly common to improve general comfort, for example, to manage stress. Among its many benefits, we highlight the following:

2. Release stress and anxiety
