Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine which involves inserting fine needles into particular points of the body to relieve pain
and promote recovery. The fine acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin for a certain amount of time to stimulate the flow of energy and restore balance, providing an ideal environment for healing. Acupuncture also works by releasing the body's own pain-relieving chemicals (endorphins). Although you may feel the needles in your skin it should not experience any pain.
