As practiced in ancient Chinese medicine, acupuncture and acupressure rebalance the flow of energy through the body. Acupuncture uses fine needles to target the body’s 12 meridians and redistribute energy, whereas acupressure applies pressure to these meridians. Treatments help relieve pain and allergies, stimulate weight loss, and reduce stress and its related symptoms.
