Acupuncture is when fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites. The needles are stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems, in pain syndromes, functional problems, and any diseases in which these modulatory mechanisms are available.
Acupuncture originates from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Traditional and modernized acupuncture has been practiced worldwide for centuries to treat various medical conditions, and remains a popular alternative to traditional forms of pain treatment.
Contrary to popular belief, acupuncture treatment has been very well studied in both eastern and western scientific literature. The scientifically proven benefits of acupuncture include pain relief, inflammation reduction, improved blood flow, stress reduction, improved nerve conduction, addiction control, as well as improved organ function.
