Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin needles at specific points of the body. It is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine, which believes that there is specific energy (called Qi or Chi) flowing in the body over pathways called meridians and many diseases derive from disruptions of that flow. Inserting needles at appropriate points helps rebalance the energy flow and restores health.
There is also the Western version of acupuncture which believes that the insertion of the needles stimulates muscles or connective tissue, helping release the natural painkillers of the body and optimizing blood flow. Therefore, it is good for treating symptoms, especially pain, when used as a supplementary treatment. Other symptoms like cramps and nausea may also be addressed using it.
