Acupuncture is one of the best-known Chinese Medicine techniques. It was developed in ancient China and is based upon the concept of a natural vital force that flows through the body called Qi. It is a technique where very fine needles are inserted into the skin to stimulate specific anatomic points in the body (acupoints), to relieve pain and balance the flow of energy throughout the body. Acupuncture can treat a variety of chronic, acute and degenerative conditions.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently listed a total of four categories of diseases and disorders encompassing over 100 different conditions for which acupuncture is considered to be effective. These also include some typical conditions prevailing in the modern society such as allergic rhinitis (including hayfever), headache, lower back pain, neck pain, tennis elbow, insomnia, depression, etc.
