Acupuncture

The word acupuncture means the insertion of needles into distinct areas of the body, these may be traditional acupuncture points, or so called trigger points.

In our department we use the term as suggested by a recent agreement among clinicians who use acupuncture in research. In this definition, acupuncture is defined as "the use of an acupuncture needle to stimulate an acupuncture point or other part of the body for therapeutic purposes".
