The term acupuncture translated from Latin literally means “inserting needles”. It is a technique in which certain parts of the body, the so-called acupuncture points are treated with special needles. As with all healing methods in Chinese medicine, the purpose of acupuncture is to harmonize the flow of Qi (vital force) in the body and restore the disturbed balance.
Nowadays, acupuncture is widespread throughout the world, including developed countries such as the United States, Japan, Canada, Russia, and Western Europe. It is constantly evolving and thanks to this development, electroacupuncture, laser acupuncture, ultrasonic acupuncture, auriculoacupuncture, magnetic therapy, and many others have been developed.
