Acupuncture is one of the modalities of Oriental medicine. Although what is called acupuncture in the West comprises several different therapies (such as moxibustion and cupping), mostly it consists of the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems. These points have been mapped by the Chinese over a period of two thousand years, and there are more than a thousand known acupoints. In the past three decades, electromagnetic research has confirmed the existence and location of these points.
The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture’s effectiveness for over 40 common disorders, such as:
Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders: Toothaches, earaches, sinusitis, rhinitis, laryngitis
Respiratory Disorders: Colds & flus, bronchitis, asthma, allergies, emphysema
Gastrointestinal Disorders: Food allergies, nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, ulcers, colitis
