Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine widely practiced in China and also found in regions of south-east Asia, Europe and the Americas. The theories of acupuncture hold that the human body acts as a small universe connected by channels, and that by physically stimulating these channels the practitioner can promote the human body’s self-regulating functions and bring health to the patient.
This stimulation involves the insertion of needles into points on these channels, with the aim to restore the body’s balance and prevent and treat disease. In acupuncture, needles are selected according to the individual condition and used to puncture and stimulate the chosen points.
