Acupuncture is the art of inserting needles into certain points along along the skin, in order to alleviate a number of different ailments (depending on the region the art is being practice). In the United States, acupuncture is used mainly for pain relief, however it can be used as a complimentary treatment for other ailments being worked on by chiropractic or cold laser therapy.
The clinical affects of acupuncture are widely debated, and are often considered to be skewed based on the bias of those performing the experiments. However, there are those that report that the acupuncture treatment alleviated the pain in the are being treated. Part of these results is likely do to the fact that the process causes the patient to be completely relaxed. s opposed to massage, the patient does not need to be aware of the process that is taking place, and is often asked to remain perfectly still during the process. This deep relaxation, when conducted regularly, can be responsible for the physical improvements experienced in the positive case studies.
