What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture works through stimulating the body’s healing responses or immune system. Acupoints lie on lines or channels in the body and are stimulated by the insertion of thin, fine needles at various locations. The actions of each point, combinations of points and their effectiveness in treating different diseases have been learnt through clinical practice of many Centuries.  In recent years these actions have been scientifically refined and verified by modern scientific research.
