What is acupuncture?
A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — that flows through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, your energy flow will re-balance.

Is not about beauty but about health. If our interior is healthy and balanced, and if we have inner tranquillity and contentment, if we are well nourished and exercise moderately. Our inner beauty will shine too.
The skin, however, which is the outermost covering of our body, is visible in a very large area, and therefore is the most important place to address to manifest beauty. Skin problems occur because the blood, Qi, yin and yang of the body are imbalanced.
