Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body at precise points which have been shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems. These acupuncture points have been mapped by Chinese practitioners over a period of two thousand years. Yet, it was only recently that advanced electromagnetic research has confirmed the validity of these locations.
Acupuncture is part of the complete medical system of traditional Chinese medicine. It is a method that encourages the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning.
