Acupuncture is an alternative medicine developed thousands of years ago by the Chinese. Through thousands of years of clinical study and practice, it was discovered the insertion of needles in specific locations on the body can alter the functioning of the body to the patients benefits. From a western medical perspective Acupuncture increases blood flow to an area (to increase healing by bringing oxygen and nutrients), releases pain killing hormones, and interacts with the nervous system to kill nerve pain (as demonstrated by MRI's taken during acupuncture treatments).
