Acupuncture is a technique used to stimulate specific points on the body by inserting thin needles through the skin. It has been practiced throughout the world - most notably in Eastern cultures - for thousands of years. The practice is becoming more widely used for a variety of ailments in all cultures, either alone or in combination with western medicine. Acupuncture primarily promotes integrated medicine - using acupuncture in conjunction with more conventional therapy to achieve the best outcome.

Acupuncture is a tool frequently used as part of a comprehensive physical rehabilitation and/or pain management program, including the treatment of osteoarthritis, myofascial disease, generalized pain, intervertebral disc disease, and paresis/paralysis.
