What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment method which is performed with the insertion of small needles into various areas of one's body. The individual performing the acupuncture will determine where the pain is being felt and then use the needles to stimulate pressure points on the body. The needles usually stay in for around 20 minutes or so and will then be removed. Those who have just had acupuncture performed may feel exuberant or laid back, depending on the individual and pressure points stimulated.
