Acupuncture

Acupuncture as a therapeutic intervention is widely practiced in the United States.  The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health.  Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease.  Acupuncture may correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin.  Findings from basic research have begun to elucidate the mechanisms of action of acupuncture, including the release of opioids and other peptides in the central nervous system and the periphery and changes in neuroendocrine function.

People use acupuncture to relieve pain and treat certain health conditions. You can use it by itself or as part of a treatment program.
