Acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture needles being placed in a woman's back. This traditional Chinese practice 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.
