What is medical acupuncture?
Medical acupuncture is widely considered a safe treatment especially in relieving muscle spasms. It involves inserting very thin needles onto a person's skin at specific points on the body.
Acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissue can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow, while at the same time triggering the activity of the body’s natural painkillers.
