What is medical acupuncture?
Medical acupuncture is derived from Asian and European sources, and is practiced in both pure and hybrid forms. Therapeutic insertion of solid needles in various combinations and patterns is the foundation of medical acupuncture. The choice of needle patterns may be based on traditional principles such as encouraging the flow of qi - a subtle vivifying energy - through classically described acupuncture channels, modern concepts such as recruiting neuroanatomical activities in segmental distributions, or a combination of these two principles.
