One of the most popular and successful complementary medicine therapies, acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, sterilised needles into the skin to stimulate points along the channels to regulate the flow of energy, alleviate pain and initiate the healing process. The points chosen depend on the doctor’s diagnoses of the patient’s condition. The needles are generally left in place for 20-30 minutes while the patient rests. Only singly-used disposable needles are used and insertion is virtually painless. Some patients will experience the benefit of acupuncture treatment immediately; others, especially those suffering from chronic diseases, may need a longer course of treatment.
