While many people have heard of acupuncture, an ancient form of the healing arts, few individuals know very much about it. Acupuncture theory holds that energy conducted by meridians known to coordinate the balance between one's spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical states. Today, Americans make as many as 12 million visits per year to acupuncture practitioners. Many people who have experienced acupuncture report relief from pain and a sense of well being immediately following. 

Acupuncture is known to have a profound impact on pain. The theory behind this is that the application of fine needles in acupuncture points stimulates the release of chemicals, such as endorphins or opiates, which dull or alleviate pain while releasing hormones, neurotransmitters, and other chemicals that aid in healing or regulation of homeostasis, such as blood pressure. Acupuncture needles are so incredibly small and thin (up to 50 times thinner than a standard hypodermic needle), they are barely noticeable when inserted. Acupuncture needles are normally left in place for anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.

Medical researchers have shown in dozens of high profile studies, that acupuncture can be an effective alternate treatment for a myriad of health problemsfrom central nervous system-related conditions and immune system response. "The use of acupuncture is associated with significant reductions in pain intensity, improvements in functional mobility and quality of life."
