Acupuncture is a form of treatment used in both traditional and classical Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is based on the principle that there are energy pathways/channels throughout the body that influence associated internal organs structures. Very fine needles are inserted at selected points, thereby activating the body's natural healing abilities.
