Acupuncture is a therapy which is conceptually based on physical science which states that there is a physical energy force which exists everywhere and net energy in the whole world remains the same. It was a Chinese therapy which was well developed in India. In Acupuncture patient's body is punctured with a very fine wire or needle in the specific part of the body. It is believed that the energy flows through this punctured section and heals the patient. Medically these specific areas are called as meridians. The needles used in Acupuncture may be twirled, energized electrically or warmed.
