Acupuncture can be traced back at least 2,500 years.
Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles through a person’s skin at specific points on the body, to various depths. Research suggests that it can help relieve pain, and it is used for a wide range of other complaints.
However, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), there is limited evidence for its effectiveness in areas other than pain. Some people claim it works by balancing vital energy, while others believe it has a neurological effect. Today acupuncture is one of the most popular practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in the West.
