Acupuncture therapy is a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body to manipulate the vital energy within the patient’s body. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy in the body.
The shape and size of acupuncture and oriental medicine supplies depend on the type of acupuncture chosen. Acupuncture works to decrease pain and speed healing by enhancing the production of natural chemicals of the body such as serotonin, endorphins, and melatonin.
Currently, acupuncture is used to treat conditions like:
- muscle pain and spasms
- digestive problems
- knee pain
- chronic back problems and pain
- neck pain
- headaches, including reducing the frequency and intensity of migraines
