About Acupuncture

What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese system of healing that is now very popular in the West as a so-called alternative therapy or complementary medicine system.

Acupuncture involves the use of very fine needles inserted into the skin at certain points of the body which are believed to be situated on energy channels called meridians. Each meridian is said to relate to a specific organ of the body. The insertion of the needles is said to unblock the channels thus allowing energy to move freely. This is believed to help restore balance to the body.

About acupuncture needles
There are several types of acupuncture needles. In ancient China 9 different types of acupuncture needle were used. Today, the most commonly used needle is the metal filiform (thread-like) needle that is made from stainless steel but can also be made of silver or gold.

Acupuncture needles come in different gauges (diameter) and lengths to be used on the different areas of the body where they are to be inserted. Historically, Chinese acupuncture needles have tended to be tapered and thicker than Japanese needles, however, the needles used nowadays are mostly very fine they vary from 0.12 mm to 0.40 mm in diameter thats about a third of a millimeter in diameter for the thickest one.
