Acupuncture is a method of prevention, correction and treatment of a disease,
illness, injury or pain by encouraging the body to promote natural healing and
improve functioning. This objective is implemented by the stimulation of certain
biologically active points on the surface of the body (acupuncture points).
These strategic points can be stimulated by the insertion of acupuncture
needles or by non-invasive techniques and other means of physical stimulation.
A key feature of acupuncture as a kind of medical intervention is that there
is no administration of any chemical substances in any form or delivery system.
