Overview of Acupuncture
Originated from China, acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that has been long used for treating various illnesses. It aims at key points in the body to help balance the energy flow. Preliminary studies have suggested many promising results and health benefits of this practice. Nevertheless, there is a lack of comprehensive and rigorous research to back up several claims. Acupuncture is often used as alternative medicine rather than a part of traditional care. Many doctors may integrate this technique into the healthcare program to help the patients ease pain and discomfort.
