AcupunctureAcupuncture is the treatment of chronic pain through the insertion of hair-thin needles into the skin at specific points on the body. When done by an experienced practitioner, it is virtually painless.

According to a meta analysis of 29 randomized studies involving 18 000 patients, acupuncture was an effective pain relief option in half of all cases and it worked especially well for chronic pain due to osteoarthritis, migraines, and chronic back, neck and shoulder pain.
