What is Western Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an age-old treatment involving the insertion of needles in the body to specific depths. This treatment encourages healing by stimulating the release of feel-good hormones and enhancing other bodily functions that allow the body to repair itself. Acupuncture currently has two modalities, the Chinese acupuncture, which is the original form of the treatment and Western acupuncture, which has its bearing in Chinese acupuncture.

Acupuncture has been used to treat the symptoms of many conditions, but current evidence from clinical trials mainly supports its efficacy (compared with placebo) in alleviation of nausea, and relief of various types of pain. Its activity in these different symptoms suggests that acupuncture does not have a single mode of action but a range of effects on various functions which increases the complexity of both understanding and researching acupuncture.
