Acupuncture is a Chinese medical practice or procedure that involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted at specified sites of the body to reduce pain or induce anesthesia. This process as done by acupuncturists works under the assumption that the body contains energy pathway, or channels, which flow through the body along specific routes that influence associated internal organs and structures. The various points on the body where the energy from these pathways surfaces is identified as acupuncture points.

Acupuncturists or acupuncture practitioners spend many years learning the acupuncture points to restore balance of emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of the human body. Acupuncturists diagnose patients’ physiological disorders, diseases and injuries and treat them by inserting acupuncture needles. There are different ways on how an acupuncturist assesses a patient’s strength and general physical, mental and emotional condition. They observe the patient’s tongue, complexion and general appearance, noting body odors, listening to the patient’s voice abdominal sounds and breathing. Also, examining a patient can be done by checking pulses at several points on each wrist and asking questions about body functions such as digestion, eating habits and sleep patterns.
