What is Acupuncture?


Acupuncture is one of the modalities of Oriental Medicine. Although what is called acupuncture in the West comprises several different therapies (such as moxibustion & cupping), mostly it consists of the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points shown to health problems. These points have been mapped by the Chinese over a period of 2 thousand years, and there are more than a thousand known acupoints. In the past 3 decades, electromagnetic research has confirmed the existence and locations of these points.
