Acupuncture is a very important treatment modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In acupuncture, specific points on the body called acupoints are stimulated by very fine needles (single-use needles) to relieve pain or to treat various diseases / disorders. These acupoints are situated on meridians in the body along which Qi (Vital Energy) flows. Each point corresponds to a specific body organ or function. Stimulation results in a free flow of Qi which helps in improving organ function and treatment of disease with restoration of health.
There are different types of acupuncture treatments like body acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, face acupuncture, ear acupuncture, and hand and foot acupuncture.
World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized the effectiveness of acupuncture.
