Caption: PROPERTY RELEASED. MODEL RELEASED. Acupuncture fertility treatment. Acupuncturist placing acupuncture needles in a woman's abdomen. The aim here is to stimulate the 'conception vessel meridian' to treat infertility. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese practice that uses needles to restore the energy flow through acupuncture points on the skin. It is used to relieve pain and to treat a wide range of disorders. Modern Western medicine explains the pain-relieving effects as stimulation by the needles causing the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.
