The history of acupuncture began 5000 years ago in ancient China. It uses small, sterile needles that are different from medical needles. Ends are not so sharp and smooth, so as not to injure the skin. They are so thin that you just push the tissue without stabbing it. Ancient Chinese acupuncture combined with herbal treatment is used in the most prestigious spas today.
Best effect is achieved by a series of sessions, although improvement may occur after the first procedure. This depends on the person of his health and problem.
The idea of acupuncture is to stimulate different parts of human body for therapeutic purposes. Usually the method is piercing the skin with a needle, but therapists use heat, pressure, rubbing, pulling or stimulation with electromagnetic energy.

Studies have shown that acupuncture can help with drug addiction.
