Acupuncture. Acupuncture needles inserted into a patient's hands in order to tonify their lungs. Acupuncture has been used in Eastern medicine for thousands of years. It involves placing needles into the body at points along energy lines known as meridians. In Western medicine, it is believed that the needles stimulate the production of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.
