Acupuncture can be remarkably effective at addressing pain relief and other ailments, often in situations where traditional medical therapy has proven ineffective. Very fine needles are inserted through the skin and tissues at specific points oin the body. There is no injection of any substance and the treatment itself causes minimal discomfort.

Classical acupuncture was developed in China as a system of diagnosing and treating pain and disease. It is one component of the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which aims to balance energy and blood in the entire body in order to keep it functional and healthy.
