Acupuncture is a form of alternative health care that has a collection of procedures involving the painless penetration of the skin with needles to stimulate certain areas and points of the body. These points have been mapped by the Chinese for over a period of 2000 years and there are more than 1000 known acupoints. In the past three decades, electromagnet research has confirmed the existence and locations of these points.
