Acupuncture is a technique that has been used in China in 3-4000 years, and consistently produce results which arouses admiration widely. Basically acupuncture is all about stimulating different trigger points (eg. a sore muscle) in the body, which again will trigger a radiation after a certain pattern. Stimulation of such a trigger point will produce the same sensation radiating (for example in a arm or a leg) in all patients with the same sore symptoms. This is a phenomenon the Chinese have observed thousands of times and interpreted as a way to 'move' the energy around the body. It is this' movement 'of energy that can address muscle pain, headache, discomfort in the throat under eg. dental treatment, chronic sinusitis etc.
