How Acupuncture Works for Respiratory Issues
Acupuncture, among the oldest healing practices in the world, is part of traditional Chinese medicine.
Acupuncture practitioners stimulate specific points on the body—most often by inserting thin needles through the skin.
In traditional Chinese medicine theory, this regulates the flow of qi (vital energy) along pathways known as meridians.
