What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient Eastern medicine. As one of the oldest, continuously practiced medical systems, acupuncture has become a widespread common practice among people in the United States. The oldest known artifact of acupuncture is Otzi, a 5000 year old mummy, found on the border of Italy and Austria in 1991. He was reported to have had various acupuncture points tattooed on his back, legs, and feet.
