Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine

Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes



Western medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles.

This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It is likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.
