Guide to Acupuncture
Acupuncture can provide pain relief. Don’t be alarmed by the needles.
An ancient form of Chinese medicine, acupuncture can be viewed from both an Eastern and a Western perspective, as discussed in the June 2018 issue of Arthritis Advisor. According to Chinese medicine, our bodies have pathways (called meridians), through which energy (Qi, pronounced “chee”) flows. “When there is an imbalance, we need to either reinforce flow or promote flow that is blocked,” says Starkey.
