The WellBe Guide to Acupuncture: What, How, and Why

You probably have a friend who swears by acupuncture, but what does it actually do, besides make you look like a pincushion? This form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses thin needles to balance the body’s qi (that’s energy in Chinese), which practitioners believe is the key to maintaining health. Qi affects your mental, physical, and spiritual health. Watch our video to get a better understanding of how this treatment works  and what it’s good for. Stay tuned for the second part of our acupuncture series where we walk you through what to expect at an appointment.
