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.
