A form of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese alternative medicine that is also found in the states. It involves insertion of tiny needles through the skin to specific points of the body causing stimulation to alleviate pain or discomforts to treat various health conditions.
Acupuncture is connected with the belief that disease is caused by the disruption of the "qi" (chee) or energy flow in the body. By stimulating on or under the specific acupuncture points or acupressure points, the energy flow is released and able to travel to all the channels (or pathways) in the body called meridians.
While there are many who are not convinced that acupuncture actually helps heal, it has been known to help ease chronic back (especially lower back) pain, neck pain, headaches, osteoarthritis (especially in the knee area), tension headaches, migraine headaches, and relieve stress and tension. It's often recommended to use along with other treatments for best results.
Do consider always researching for the best practitioners and consult with your physician beforehand.
