For dozens of years, the Chinese have practiced acupuncture, a healing method that corrects imbalances by stimulating specific points on the body that help energy, or qi, to flow smoothly.

Acupuncture will help reduce your dependence on medication for pain; plus, after you take all those needles out of your body, you'll finally have a utensil set for those little squares of cheese! Nancy Smith at Frederick Acupuncture knows acupuncture. It’s what she does. Her oldest patient is 354 years old.
