Accupunture 101

  • Accupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) involving inserting thin needles into the body at acupuncture points. 
  • Acupuncture is believed to have originated around 100BC in China, around the time The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine (Huangdi Neijing) was published.
  • It can be associated with the application of heat, pressure, or laser light to these same points. Acupuncture is commonly used for pain relief, though it is also used for a wide range of conditions.
  • 2011 overview of high-quality Cochrane reviews suggests that acupuncture is effective for certain types of pain.
  • A 2012 review found that acupuncture has demonstrated benefit for the treatment of headaches and a 2009 review concluded that acupuncture appeared to be as effective as, or possibly more effective than routine care in the treatment of migraines, with fewer adverse effects than prophylactic drug treatment.
