Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which is based on the philosophy of man functioning harmoniously with nature. According to TCM, when this harmony is disrupted within a person's body, disease ensues. Acupuncture restores a body's balance and harmony by inserting fine, sterile needles into the points correlating to imbalances, helping the body to heal from disease.
