Acupuncture (针灸zhēnjiǔ), a science and an art based on the theories of Chinese medicine, is a discipline whose objective is the prevention and treatment of disease through the stimulation of certain points on the body. Acupuncture needles are most commonly used, but acupuncturists may also use heat (moxibustion), laser, electricity or other kinds of stimulation. The first clear references on acupuncture date back to just over 2000 years. However, the idea of ​​acupuncture goes much further in the history of Chinese civilization. It has long been an important component of Chinese medicine and a technique that was widely used by Chinese doctors in their fight against disease. The clinical efficacy of acupuncture combined with its safety and availability have contributed to its development across Asia and now in most Western countries. It is indicated for a wide variety of conditions and it is a matter of time before it is completely integrated with Western medicine. Moreover, many doctors refer their patients for acupuncture treatments, whether it is for pain, functional disorders like irritable bowel syndrome or to increase the chances of a woman suffering from infertility to become pregnant with in vitro fertilization.
