Acupuncture-HealingAcupuncture is one of the modalities of Oriental medicine. Acupuncture comprises several different therapies (such as moxibustion and cupping), but mostly consists of the insertion of the fine needles into the body at specific points shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems. These body points have been mapped by the Chinese over 2000 years ago, and there are more than 1000 known acupoints.
