Medical acupuncture is a therapeutic method that involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles. Modern medical practitioners developed medical acupuncture as an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture. Instead of relying on inexact metaphors to describe the body’s responses to treatment, we employ current knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, all in keeping with evidence-based medicine. The location and source of discomfort can be determined through physical examination.

What Are Some Specific Benefits?

In addition to its well-known effects on acute and chronic pain, medical acupuncture addresses a wide range of medical issues, including:
