"Today in most western cultures, acupuncture is considered a "new alternative medicine". In reality, acupuncture has been practiced as a medical treatment for over 5000 years. As the basis of acupuncture, the body has an energy force running through meridians or channels. The energy force is known as Qi(chee). If the Qi is unbalanced, insufficient or interrupted, the body becomes unbalanced and illness may occur. The illness can manifest itself emotionally or physically."

Acupuncture in 12590 - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. 12590 acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
