Acupuncture is the insertion of fine single use stainless steel needles into  pre-determined points on the body for therapeutic affect.  Traditional Chinese  Medicine, also includes Chinese Herbal Medicine, Tuina (a form of massage), Dietary  Therapy, and special Exercise Therapy known as Qi Gong. The acupuncturist inserts  very fine needles at certain points along these channels called Acupoints and may  also use heat treatment (called Moxibustion) or Cupping in the treatment.

Research including US National Institutes of Health  and www.nih.gov shows that acupuncture causes a release of endorphins, the body’s naturally produced painkillers, causes beneficial effects to the body’s immune and endocrine systems and has profound neurophysiological effects.
