Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. The treatment involves the insertion of tiny needles into specific anatomical points on the body to alleviate pain and promote natural self-healing from pain-inhibiting chemicals while improving one’s overall health. Studies using images of the brain confirmed that acupuncture increases our pain threshold, which may explain why it produces long-term pain relief. Besides pain relief, acupuncture has also proven as an effective treatment for other conditions ranging from migraine headache, nausea, anxiety, depression, and insomnia to infertility, and more.
