Acupuncture is a type of alternative medicine that treats patients by insertion and management of solid, generally hair thin needles in the anatomical locations on or under the skin called acupuncture points. Its universal theory based on the premise that bodily functions are regulated by the flow of energy-like entity called Qi. Acupuncture aims to correct imbalances in the flow of Qi by stimulation of acupuncture points, most of which are connected by channels known as meridians. Proponents of acupuncture believe that it promotes general health, treats and prevents disease. For the following conditions, there are evidence that acupuncture is beneficial: rheumatoid arthritis, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, neck pain, chronic asthma, primary dysmenorrhea, fibromyalgia, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, smoking cessation, vascular dementia, help relieves various types of pain, neurological problems and stroke rehabilitation ets. Classically, in clinical practice, acupuncture is highly individualized and based on philosophy and intuition. Acupuncture treatment/visit typically lasts from 10 to 60 minutes. Acupuncture covered by many major Health Insurances. In 1973, the American Internal Revenue Service allowed acupuncture to be deducted as a medical expense.
