Acupuncture needle tip, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). In western cultures acupuncture is considered a new alternative medicine. Acupuncture is a localized body medical treatment that is over 5,000 years old (traditional Chinese medicine - TCM). The insertion of very fine needles on the body's surface (sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulus), is used to influence physiological functioning of the body. According to acupuncture theory, this will restore health and well-being, and is particularly good at treating pain. Magnification: x600 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
