Acupuncture is the insertion of fine disposable needles into specific points of the body to promote healing. The area of insertion and the number of needles used depends on the
condition being treated. Acupuncture is not painful but can illicit specific sensations. The amount of stimulation used is based on the sensitivity of the patient.
