Acupuncture is a healing method and component of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The name comes from the latin term “acus” (needle) and describes needle puncturing as a healing treatment against health complaints such as headaches and digestive problems. The great success of acupuncture is based on the knowledge that the placement of needles along specific acupuncture points on the skin (such as guidelines and meridians) can release a pulse of mood enhancing hormones and positively influences the brain metabolism. The pain resistance associated with this treatment leads the patient to enjoy long-lasting wellbeing.
