Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture involves the stimulation of precise points on the surface of the body. The stimulation is achieved by inserting needles just under the skin. Electrical stimulation can also be used to enhance the stimulation. Stimulation of the nerves helps to relieve the body's natural responses to pain, inflammation and infection.
Acupuncture has been used in patients who have arthritis, digestive problems, back pain, kidney disease, and many other conditions. Acupuncture has shown to be successful in many of these cases.
