Acupuncture treatment is a traditional chinese medicine. it is efdfective in pain relief. Pain relief is achieved through insertion of steel needle to specific point, at specific depth and with specific technique. This needle will stimulate the related nerve that enhance production of endophine or endogeneous morphine (natural morphine produce by our body) by the CNS, that in turn reduces pain. I have a little bit of technical knowhow on accupuncture which i acquired from "Ex-communist doctor".about 28 years ago. It is effective to relief acute joint pain, STI, odontalgia, headache, cervicodynia (neck pain due to wrong sleeping position) and other common illness. If you have the chance to learn basic accupuncture- take it. but dont do it as enterprising to earn money if u have no certificate to show that u are qualified. keep the skill for your own use.
