Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine which involves inserting thin needles into the body at acupuncture points.

Acupoints used for treatment may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom which is why the selection of such points and their effectiveness is believed to work by stimulating the meridian system to bring about relief through rebalancing of energies.

Acupuncture can be associated with the application of heat and pressure to these same points and is a useful accompaniment to massage. Commonly used for pain, acupuncture is also used for a wide range of other conditions.
