The article presents information on acupuncture. Acupuncture is one of the hallmark treatments of traditional Chinese medicine. It stimulates critical points on the body in order to rebalance qi or energy through the use of thin, metallic needles that are inserted into the skin. Acupuncture is viewed as a complementary and alternative medicine treatment in the U.S. where it is now widely used, including among people with multiple sclerosis.
