What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient method of treatment used in the countries of the Far East for several millennia. In the West, the method became known only in the 18th century, and only about 30 years ago was considered to be effective adjunctive therapy. The word "acupuncture" comes from the Latin - "acus" - a needle and "punctura" / from pungere / - impale, literally means pricking with needles.

Acupuncture is a set of procedures involving piercing the skin with very fine needles to stimulate certain points on the body. Clinical studies show that this may be beneficial to patients and helps in a number of diseases. At the moment this is one of the most popular alternative/complementary therapies and is widely used in Western clinics that apply the so-called integrated approach in medicine.
