According to National Health Institute (NIH), acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body. Most often, acupuncture is performed by inserting thin needles through the skin. It is one of the practices used in traditional Chinese medicine. It is painless and effective.


What is acupuncture?

Results from a number of studies suggest that acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches. Therefore, acupuncture appears to be a reasonable option for people with chronic pain to consider.


However, clinical practice guidelines are inconsistent in recommendations about acupuncture. The effects of acupuncture on the brain and body and how best to measure them are only beginning to be understood.
