Acupuncture is a therapeutic method traditionally used in China, possibly for some 22 centuries, which uses the needles with which certain acupuncture points of the body are punctured, as indicated by its name ("acu" = needle, "puncture" = click, in Latin).
His theory and practice are based on a broad spectrum of acupunctural philosophical theories, rather than on scientific knowledge, but which in any case has proven effective especially in the treatment of pain. It is considered as an alternative medicine.
