Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese therapeutic technique. It is done by introducing wire thin needles into specific point of the body. It has now become very famous in Europe and Asia too. Acupuncture uses very fine needles to excite specific points located on the body, in order to affect the Qi of the body.
Stimulating acupuncture points results in both the local area being needled and other, remote areas of the body to be stimulated. Acupuncture and moxibustion can be exercised as precludive medicine, as treatment for acute injuries and illnesses, and for treatment or palliation of chronic illness or pain.
Acupuncture works by balancing the body's positive and negative forces (yang and yin), that become unbalanced due to diseases and pain.
