Acupuncture is the practice of inserting fine needles into various points around the body, usually to alleviate pain. Acupuncture is widely used throughout the world by osteopaths, as a tool to speed up the healing process. In recent research acupuncture has been shown to work by its ability to stimulate the body's release of its own natural pain killers (endorphins) to help ease pain. Acupuncture can help with a wide variety of conditions, and can be used on its own or in conjunction with other forms of osteopathy.
