Caption: Acupuncture. Acupuncturist inserting a needle into a man's face. These needles are placed in the skin at specific points on the body along energy lines known as meridians. Disorders are cured by altering the flow of life energy (Qi) along the meridians. When positioned in the bridge of the nose, as shown, they are used as a treatment for stress, tension and headaches. In Western acupuncture it is believed that the needles also stimulate the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.
