Caption: Acupuncture needles in a woman's ear, hand and back. This traditional Chinese practice uses needles to restore an energy flow through acupuncture points on the skin. It is used to relieve pain and treat a wide range of disorders. Modern Western medicine explains the pain-relieving effects by suggesting that the needles stimulate the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.
