What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a comprehensive natural health care system that has been used in asian countries for thousands of years to preserve health and diagnose, treat and prevent illness.
Acupuncture treats health conditions by stimulating “acupoints” found at specific locations on the surface of the body through insertion of very thin needles through the skin.
Other methods are also used to stimulate acupoints such as moxibustion, cupping, electro-acupuncture, fingerpressure or heat.
