What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese method used to relieve some health conditions and symptoms, such as pain. An acupuncturist inserts very thin steel needles into your skin at multiple ‚Äúacupoints.‚ÄĚ The needles rebalance your body‚Äôs energy, or qi, and prompt your body to release natural chemicals to fight the illness or symptom[1].

"Auricular acupuncture is probably the most developed and best documented, scientifically, of all the Microsystems of acupuncture and is the most practical and widely used."


Director General of the World Health Organisation 1990
