What is Acupuncture?

In acupuncture, sterile, hair-thin needles are inserted into specific points on the skin, called "acupuncture points," and then gently moved. Researchers propose that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system to release natural painkillers and immune system cells. They then travel to weakened areas of the body and relieve symptoms.

  • help relieve fatigue
  • control hot flashes
  • help decrease nausea
  • reduce vomiting
  • lessen pain
